OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of base layer thickness of DyadFlow(DF) self-adhesive resin on dentin bonding strength.

METHODS: Twenty extracted intact human molars were randomly selected and the occlusal surface of each molar was prepared by removing the enamel and exposing the dentin surface. The prepared molars were divided, randomly and equally, into 4 groups. For groups G0.5, G1.0 and G2.0, DF was applied directly on the dentin surfaces following the manufacturer's instruction, and for group GOB, OptiBond All-in-One(OB) self etching adhesive was applied on the dentin surface before using DF. The base layer thickness of DF was 0.5 mm, 1.0 mm, 2.0 mm, 2.0 mm for groups G0.5, G1.0, G2.0 and GOB, respectively. Composite crown were built up on each tooth, then the samples were sectioned longitudinally into sticks with proximately 1.0 mm2 bonding area(for microtensile bond strength[MTBS] testing) or slabs (for bonding interface observation with SEM). Fifteen sticks were obtained for each group. The fracture surface was also observed using SEM and the fracture type of each specimen was determined.

RESULTS: The MTBS were: GOB (20.19±3.11) MPa>G0.5 (8.65±1.58) MPa>G1.0 (6.65±1.13) MPa>G2.0 (5.70±0.60) MPa(P<0.05). Bonding interface fracture B2 was most frequently observed for all groups: G0.5: 14/15, G1.0: 13/15, G2.0: 14/15 and GOB: 13/15.

CONCLUSIONS: The MTBS decreased when the base layer thickness of DF increased. Direct application of DF self-adhesive resin on dentin surface adhesive restorations should be concerned.
