Article

Background: Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) has been widely used in root canal therapy. MTA has been mixed with chlorhexidine to increase its antimicrobial effect.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of chlorhexidine (2%) on push-out bond strength of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA).

Materials and Methods: Sixty dentin disks with a thickness of 1.5 ± 0.2 mm and lumen size of 1.3 mm were prepared. Dentin disks were randomly divided into four groups (n = 15), and their lumens were filled with MTA mixed with distilled water (groups 1 and 3) or with chlorhexidine 2% (groups 2 and 4). Specimens were incubated at 37°C for 3 days (groups 1 and 2) or 21 days (groups 3 and 4). Bond strengths of the MTA-treated dentin surfaces were evaluated using a universal testing machine, and bond failure on the disks was examined by light microscope. Data was analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis H test (P = 0.976).

Results: There were no statistically significant differences between all the experimental groups. The mode of bond failure was predominantly mixed for distilled water groups and cohesive for CHX groups.

Conclusions: This study suggested that chlorhexidine had no negative effect on the bond strengths of MTA-treated dentin.
