Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the bond strength between the fibre post and root dentin after different cleaning protocols to remove eugenol from dentin. The residues and elemental composition of dentin were analysed using SEM and EDS. Bovine incisor roots were obturated with eugenol-based sealer. The post space was prepared, and the roots were divided into the following groups according to the cleaning protocol: unfilled (negative control), saline solution (positive control), 70% ethanol, acetone and 70% isopropyl alcohol. The fibre posts were cemented and push-out test realised. Chemical analysis of the dentin was performed using SEM and EDS. The bond strength values were analysed by anova/Fisher's and were as follows: negative control (7.30 ± 2.77) = 70% ethanol (6.64 ± 2.91) = 70% isopropyl alcohol (5.01 ± 3.15) = acetone (4.42 ± 1.53) >positive control (1.29 ± 0.56). It was concluded that 70% ethanol may be a good cleaning protocol to remove eugenol from dentin.
