An experimental base adhesive resin was formulated with BisGMA, TEGDMA and HEMA, to which BTAM was added at 1, 2.5 and 5%, in weight. One group with no addition was used as control. The experimental adhesives were evaluated for antibacterial potential (against Streptococcus mutans), degree of conversion with FTIR, softening in solvent and microRaman interface analyses. Read More
