    Author(s): Majedah Al-Homaidhi*

    Introduction: New bioceramic products continue to be released into the market, with slight differences in formulation, manipulation, and manufacturer’s instructions. NeoPUTTY is a new fast setting bioceramic putty that is easy to manipulate, and final restoration can be placed immediately. Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the shear bond strength of resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) and self-adhering flowable composite (SAFC) to the NeoPUTTY placed immediately or after 24 h. Materials and Methods: A total of 80 Teflon blocks with a central hole (4 mm in diameter and 2 mm in depth) were prepared and filled with NeoPUTTY. The blocks were then assigned to two groups (n=40) based on the restorative materials used (SAFC or RMGIC). Each group was subdivided into two subgroups (n=20) based on the evaluation intervals (immediately and 24 h after placing the NeoPUTTY. After the.. Read More»
