    Non-invasive quantification of resin–dentin interfacial gaps using optical coherence tomography: Validation against confocal microscopy

    Objectives Regardless of the cause, gap formation at the tooth–restoration interface may result in treatment failure; non-destructive assessment and monitoring of these defects are important. The aim of this in vitro study is to assess the tooth–restoration interface using a non-invasive technique; swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and to confirm the findings with confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM). Methods Cylindrical class-I cavities (3 mm in diameter and 1.5 mm in depth) were prepared in the occlusal surface of human premolars. Each cavity was restored using an all-in-one adhesive system (Clearfil Tri-S Bond) and one of the ...
