Using electric current during dentin bonding agent application and its effect on microleakage under simulated pulpal pressure conditions

The use of electric current during application of etch-and-rinse adhesive systems has been recently introduced to decrease microleakage. This study investigated the effects of an electric field produced by an experimental device for the application of a two-step etch-and-rinse adhesive on moist dentin surface. Sixty freshly extracted human premolars were used for this study. In order to simulate real conditions, the...
