Title
Impact of immediate and delayed light activation on self-polymerization of dual-cured dental resin luting agents
Abstract

This study investigated the impact of immediate and delayed light activation on self-polymerization of a model dual-cured luting agent. The material presented the following components: base paste – 2,2-bis[4-(2-hydroxy-3-methacryloxyprop-1-oxy)phenyl]propane/triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA), camphorquinone, dimethyl-p-toluidine, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), glass fillers; catalyst paste – bisphenol-A ethoxylated dimethacrylate/TEGDMA, benzoyl peroxide, BHT, fillers. The pastes were mixed and seven polymerization scenarios tested: immediate light activation using low (5 J cm−2) or high (20 J cm−2) energy dose; delayed light activation (after 2 min – short delay) using low or high dose; delayed light activation (after 10 min – long delay) using low or high dose; and self-polymerization only. The degree of conversion (DC) and rate of polymerization (Rp) were evaluated for 30 min by real-time infrared spectroscopy. The lowest DC was detected for the self-polymerized and immediate–low dose groups, whereas the immediate–high dose and short delay–high dose groups showed the highest values. For the self-polymerized and immediate–high dose samples, Rpmax was detected after approximately 7 s, whereas this took approximately 14 s for the immediate–low dose group. Rpmax for the immediate–high dose group was higher than for the self-polymerized sample, which in turn was higher than for the immediate–low dose group. Rpmax for the short delay groups was higher than for the long delay groups. In conclusion, the extent of self-polymerization was influenced by the light dose reaching the material, which was dependent on high radiant exposure for optimal polymerization and the moment at which the light was applied; the short delay increased the DC for lower doses, while also generally decreasing the Rp for all scenarios.
