Resumen

Statement of problem: Information regarding the shrinkage kinetics and monomer conversion of dual-polymerized conventional and self-adhesive resin luting agents (RLA) in situ is lacking. Purpose: The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the shrinkage strain and ratio of 1 conventional and 1 self-adhesive RLA by using fiber optic sensors based on Bragg gratings and Vickers hardness in the root canal. Material and methods: The root canals of 34 single-rooted premolars were endodontically treated and assigned to 2 groups according to the RLA: RelyX ARC (ARC) and RelyX U200 (U200). Two Bragg grating sensors were attached to fiber posts (n=10), and both post and RLA were placed inside the root canal so that shrinkage strain and ratio values could be measured at the cervical and apical root thirds. For hardness analysis (n=7), two 1-mm-thick slices of each root-third (cervical and apical) were obtained, and 4 indentations were made on the RLA layer. The shrinkage strain and rate, as well as hardness data, were evaluated by using 2-way repeated-measures ANOVA followed by the Bonferroni post hoc test when a significant interaction between factors was detected (α=.05). Results: The shrinkage strain and rate values of both RLAs were higher at the cervical third than those at the apical third. ARC showed higher shrinkage strain than U200 at the cervical third. The highest hardness values were observed at the cervical third, while ARC showed the lowest hardness values at the apical third. Conclusions: The shrinkage kinetics profile and hardness of self-adhesive RLA may differ from those of conventional RLA depending on the root third.
