AGUIAR, Juliana Dias et al. Influence of Prolonged use of Desensitizing Dentifrices on Dentin Bond Strength of Self-Etching Adhesive System. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2016, vol.10, n.1, pp.135-142. ISSN 0718-381X.

Dentin hypersensitivity is a relatively common clinical condition, which affects a large part of the world's population. The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of previous and prolonged treatment with desensitizing dentifrices (DD) on bond strength to dentin, promoted by a self-etching adhesive system. Seventy non-carious bovine incisors were used, and divided into five groups (n= 14), according to the desensitizing toothpaste used, such as, G1: distilled water (WATER) (control); G2: Colgate Total 12 (CT12) (control); G3: Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief (CSPR); G4: Sensodyne Rapid Relief (SRR); G5: Sensodyne Repair & Protect (SRP). Teeth had their buccal surfaces flattened until the exposure of dentin, and fragments of 4x4x2 mm were obtained. Fragments were included in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cylinders and exposed to 17 % EDTA for 1 min. Subsequently, specimens were submitted to 20 000 cycles of simulated dental toothbrushing. After 24 h in artificial saliva, specimens were hybridized (Clearfil SE Bond ­ Kuraray), as well as resin composite cylinders built on dentin surfaces. Samples were stored in distilled water, at 37 C for 24 h, and the shear bond strength was determined. The highest bond strength (MPa) value was seen in CT12 group (4.39), and the lowest one in CSPR group (3.34). Data were statistically analyzed by 1-way ANOVA (ð= 0.05), and results showed that there were no significant differences (p= 0.5986) considering the DD factor. The predominant fracture pattern was cohesive on dentin. The previous and prolonged use of different DD did not affect dentin bond strength promoted by a self-etching adhesive system.
