Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate, by the means of microtensile bond strength (μTBS) test, gelatin and in situ zymography, the influence of 0.2% CHX contained within a commercially available adhesive on long-term bond strength and endogenous enzymatic activity. Methods: Non-carious teeth were subjected to μTBS test (N = 15 for each group) and stressed until failure. μTBS was evaluated immediately and after 12-month storage in artificial saliva at 37 °C. Dentin powder was obtained from additional teeth (N = 7) for gelatin zymography, while for in situ zymography, 3 teeth for each group were selected. Gelatin and in situ zymography were performed in dentin powder and slices of dentin, respectively, to assess the ability of 0.2% CHX blended within the adhesive to inhibit endogenous enzymatic activity. Results: μTBS bond strength was higher in the CHX-containing groups, immediately as well as after aging. The bond strength significantly decreased after 12-month aging. The activation of endogenous MMPs was found to be related to the presence of CHX within the adhesive system and the bonding strategy employed. Conclusions: Under this perspective 0.2% CHX blended within Peak Universal adhesive monomer seems to increase immediate bond strength, to preserve bond strength over time and to efficiently inhibit endogenous enzymatic activity in dentin. Hence, blending the CHX in low concentrations within the adhesive could be recommended as a feasible technique in every-day clinical practice. Clinical significance: Using CHX-containing adhesives could be recommended due to several benefits: it seems to increase the longevity of the hybrid layer; the inhibitor appears to be efficiently delivered to the dentinal substrate and to inhibit endogenous enzymatic activity, without prolonging chair time.

Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate, by the means of microtensile bond strength (μTBS) test, gelatin and in situ zymography, the influence of 0.2% CHX contained within a commercially available adhesive on long-term bond strength and endogenous enzymatic activity. Methods: Non-carious teeth were subjected to μTBS test (N = 15 for each group) and stressed until failure. μTBS was evaluated immediately and after 12-month storage in artificial saliva at 37 °C. Dentin powder was obtained from additional teeth (N = 7) for gelatin zymography, while for in situ zymography, 3 teeth for each group were selected. Gelatin and in situ zymography were performed in dentin powder and slices of dentin, respectively, to assess the ability of 0.2% CHX blended within the adhesive to inhibit endogenous enzymatic activity. Results: μTBS bond strength was higher in the CHX-containing groups, immediately as well as after aging. The bond strength significantly decreased after 12-month aging. The activation of endogenous MMPs was found to be related to the presence of CHX within the adhesive system and the bonding strategy employed. Conclusions: Under this perspective 0.2% CHX blended within Peak Universal adhesive monomer seems to increase immediate bond strength, to preserve bond strength over time and to efficiently inhibit endogenous enzymatic activity in dentin. Hence, blending the CHX in low concentrations within the adhesive could be recommended as a feasible technique in every-day clinical practice. Clinical significance: Using CHX-containing adhesives could be recommended due to several benefits: it seems to increase the longevity of the hybrid layer; the inhibitor appears to be efficiently delivered to the dentinal substrate and to inhibit endogenous enzymatic activity, without prolonging chair time.
