VALENZUELA ARANGUIZ, V.; GARCIA GONZALEZ, D. and ZAMORANO PINO, X.. Hibrid layer micromorphology of two adhesive systems: TEM analysis. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.3, pp.133-140. ISSN 0213-1285.
Numerous studies show differences in micromorfological aspects between self-etchings and conventional adhesive systems. Dentin cavities were performed on 6 premolars to compare Micromorphology of the hybrid layer between both systems. One three of them self-etching system was applied, on the other three, the monocomponent conventional system. The hybrid layer formed by the self-etching system showed a regular pattern, thinner and more homogenous than the one formed by the conventional system. The average thickness of the structure was 1 ìm and 2 ìm respectively.
