    Adaptation Assessment of Three Bonded Resin Restorations at the Cavity Floor Using Cross-Polarization Optical Coherence Tomography

    Objective: The aim of the study was to compare the composite adaptation of three systems by using cross-polarization optical coherence tomography (CP-OCT). Background data: Most polymer-based restorations suffer from polymerization shrinkage that affects the interfacial seal. This shrinkage cannot be detected by conventional X-ray methods. Optical coherence tomography was proved to be a reliable non-invasive imaging tool to examine biological structures and biomaterials at micron scale. Methods: Twenty-four cylindrical class-V cavities were prepared on the buccal surfaces of the extracted human molars. After cavity preparation, samples were randomly divided into three groups ( n  = 8) according to the restoration system: one-step ...
