- > Degradation of the hybrid layer decreases the durability of resin-dentine bonds, and continued destruction of tooth structure. This presentation will show how innovative approaches may remineralize the resin-dentine interface and protect hybrid layers from degradation over time. Such therapeutic bonding may also enhance the durability of resin- dentine bonds created after minimally invasive adhesive restorations.
Innovative approaches to remineralize the resin-dentine interface may protect hybrid layers for long-lasting restorations. There is no current restorative material able to remineralize hybrid layers and completely restore the modulus of elasticity of mineral-depleted dental collagen structures within resin-bonded interfaces. This paper will demonstrate that smart bioactive/biomimetic materials can remineralize and protect demineralized collagen fibrils within remaining caries-affected dentine, as well as those within poorly resin-infiltrated hybrid layers. Such experimental approaches may protect the dentine collagen from proteases-mediated degradation and possibly prevent the re-occurrence of secondary carious lesions.
