INTRODUCTION: Mechanical performance of dentine is of major significance for the overall function of the teeth. Remineralization of carious dentine is the ultimate goal in re-establishing the functionality of the affected tissue so as to regain and maintain the mechanical properties of dentine. Functional remineralization of the affected dentin involves stabilization of both inorganic and organic component, but Caesin Phosphopeptide Amorphous Calcium Flurophosphate (CPP-ACFP) stabilizes only inorganic content. Hence to stabilize organic content and to bring in functional remineralization the use of anticollagenolytic and antielastastic agent was considered for this study. AIM: To assess and compare the remineralization of artificial carious dentin pre treated with white and green tea, before and after application of CPP-ACFP using microhardness test. Null hypothesis was that both teas did not have any effect on remineralization potential of CPP ACFP. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty specimens were subjected to artificial caries lesions and were randomly divided into 4 groups based on the application of tea extract followed by CPP-ACFP (groups A & B) and CPP-ACFP followed by tea extracts (groups C & D). All the specimens were subjected to two pH cycling regimen. The specimens were subjected to Vickers microhardness test to obtain the microhardness values. The values were statistically analysed using one-way ANOVA and multiple comparisons with Tukey's HSD procedure. RESULTS: After the 1(st) and 2(nd) pH cycling in groups A and B, Group B showed significant increase in microhardness values (35.79± 3.12 VHN). But after the pH cycling regimen in groups C and D, microhardness values increased in 1(st) pH cycling (50.03± 3.64 VHN); (50.03±3.64 VHN), respectively but decreased during the 2(nd) pH cycling, (33.94±6.45 VHN); (33.11±6.11 VHN) respectively with the level of significance <0.05. CONCLUSION: The results of this study rejects the hypothesis tested and showed that both the tea extracts increased the microharness values when used prior to the application of remineralizing agent. However, 10% white tea showed better microhardness indicating stabilization of collagen in dentine resulting in functional remineralization.

OBJECTIVE: This in vitro study investigated the effect of a desensitizer on the degree of conversion of two bonding resins using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An etch-and-rise bonding resin and a self-etching adhesive resin were selected for the study. Vivasens (Ivoclar Vivadent) was used as a desensitizing agent. Grouping was done as follows: Group I: Adper Single Bond (n=10), Group II: Adper Single Bond + Vivasens (n=10), Group III: AdheSE One (n=10), Group IV: AdheSE One + Vivasens (n=10). The bonding resin alone was light cured for 20 seconds in groups I and III. For groups II and IV, 1 ml each of the bonding resin and the desensitizer was mixed in a vial and light cured for 20 seconds. The specimens were analysed using FTIR spectroscopy. RESULTS: Group II (Adper Single Bond + Vivasens) showed a significantly higher degree of conversion compared to Group I (Adper Single Bond). Comparing Groups III and IV, Group IV (AdheSE One + Vivasens) showed a significantly higher degree of conversion compared to Group III (AdheSE One). CONCLUSIONS: The degree of conversion is increased when a dentin bonding agent is used along with a desensitizer. Hence, this combination can be recommended to effectively control postoperative sensitivity.
