    OCT for early quality evaluation of tooth–composite bond in clinical trials

    Objectives To evaluate early quality of composite restorations with a universal adhesive in different application modes clinically and with optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods 22 patients with four non-carious cervical lesions each received composite restorations (Filtek Supreme TM XTE, 3 M). The universal adhesive Scotchbond Universal TM (SBU, 3 M) was applied with three etching protocols: self-etch (SE), selective-enamel-etch (SEE) and etch-and-rinse (ER). The etch-and-rinse adhesive OptiBond TM FL (OFL, Kerr) served as a control. Restorations were imaged by OCT (Thorlabs) directly after application (t 0 ). After 14 days (t 1 ) and 6 month (t 2 ) OCT imaging (interfacial adhesive ...
