A study on the shear bond strength of light-cured glass ionomer cement

  • 1Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Wonkwang University, Korea.


The purpose of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strength of light cured glass ionomer cement to enamel surface which treated with 37% phosphoric acid, 10% polyacrylic acid, 1.23% acidulated phosphate fluoride gel and no etching agent. To compare the shear bond strength of glass ionomer cement, light-cured composite resin and chemically-cured composite resin were empoloyed as controls. Eight experiments groups were composed. 10 specimens of each group were bonded by metal bracket by tested in universal testing machine for shear bond strength, in stereoscope for adhesive remnants index. The data were evaluated statistically by SPSS/PC+. The results were as follows. 1. Among the groups of 37% phosphoric acid treated and dry and bonded with light cured glass ionomer, light cured composite resin, and chemically cured composite resin, the shear bond strength of glass ionomer group showed no significant difference to the others, but the shear bond strength of chemically cured resin showed statistically lower than that of light cured resin p<0.05). 2. The shear bond strengths of glass ionomer cement to enamel treated group with 1.23% acidulated phosphate fluoride gel and 10% polyacrylic acid and 37% phosphoric acid showed statistically higher than that of no etched enamel group(p<0.05). 3. In the groups of glass ionomer cement, the presence of moisture was not significantly effect to the shear bond strength (p<0.05). 4. After debonding, no etched enamel group showed less residual materials on the. enamel surface than the group of enamel etched with 37% phosphoric acid.
