Study Regarding the Effect of Toothbrush and Toothpaste on Surface Roughness of Different Restorative Materials


Abstract:
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of toothbrushing with toothpastes having different relative dentine abrasivity (RDA) and toothbrushes having different bristles hardness on different composite resins, compomers and traditional glassionomer cements by surface roughness evaluation. All the samples were evaluated regarding the surface roughness using roughness checker (Taylor Hobson-Surtronic25, AMETEK Inc., Pennsylvania, USA) and the average roughness values (Ra) were recorded. In the conditions of this study all the tested materials were abraded by the toothpastes and toothbrushes. Hard bristles tootbrush associated with high RDA tootpaste abraded higher all the materials for filling when compared to hard bristles tootbrush associated with low RDA toothpaste and medium bristles toothbrush associated with low RDA toothpaste. Traditional glassionomer cement was the most affected by abrasion, followed by microhybrid composite resin, flowable composite and compomer.
