    Assessment of defects at tooth/self-adhering flowable composite interface using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT)

    Abstract Objectives Assessment of adhesive defects of a self-etch adhesive and a self-adhering flowable composite at the tooth/composite interface before and after water storage by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods 16 extracted human molars ( n = 8 each) with box-shaped, class-V cavities were restored either with an experimental self-adhering flowable composite (EF, DMG) or with the filling system Adper™ Prompt™ L-Pop™/Filtek™ Supreme XT Flowable composite (PLP, 3M ESPE). Restorations of both groups were non-invasively imaged using swept-source OCT before and after storage in water. The OCT signal for adhesive defects at the tooth/composite interface was quantified. Results At ...
