Clinical evaluation of silorane-based and dimethacrylate-based resin composites: 1-year follow-up
This study sought to evaluate the 1-year clinical performance of silorane-based and dimethacrylate-based Class II resin composite restorations using 2 bonding strategies. Eighty-two restorations were placed in 32 patients (median age 37 years) by a single operator. Only Class II restorations were included. Each patient received 1-2 pairs of resin composite restorations with both restoration materials. Between-group comparisons were made using an adjusted chi-square test and an adjusted McNemar's chi-square test to analyze the intrasystem data (α = 0.05). Both systems demonstrated acceptable clinical performance after 1 year.
