Methods of Evaluation of the Adhesion between Composites and Tooth Tissues – Review of the Literature

W stomatologii zachowawczej lekarze, wybierając materiał nie mogą czekać na odległe w czasie oceny kliniczne, mimo że wieloletnia obserwacja i ewaluacja wypełnień w jamie ustnej pacjenta jest niewątpliwie najbardziej obiektywnym i wiarygodnym źródłem informacji o trwałości wypełnienia. Aby dany materiał w ogóle u pacjenta zastosować, należy być pewnym jego wysokiej jakości. Na jakość wypełnień, a tym samym na ich trwałość ma wpływ wiele czynników. Niezbędne jest prowadzenie badań laboratoryjnych oceniających różne wskaźniki danego materiału. Tego typu testy są prowadzone bardzo często, jednak mimo istnienia pewnych norm dotyczących ich przebiegu, badacze wprowadzają innowacje, co utrudnia porównanie wyników badań.


In the conservative dentistry physicians before choosing the filling material cannot wait for long-time clinical observations, although this type of evaluation of material in patient’s oral cavity is the most objective and reliable source of information concerning the durability of the restoration. On the other hand, in order to use particular material during patient’s treatment, we ought to be convinced of it’s high quality. The quality of restorations, and thus their durability is affected by many factors. It is essential to conduct laboratory tests, that asses different parameters of the material. Such tests are carried out quite often. In spite of the presence of some standards for their course, the researchers introduce innovations, making it difficult to compare these studies with each other.
