Abstract: Despite the advances made in the field of adhesive dentistry, microleakage still remains an area of concern, as a secure seal to dentine and cementum still cannot be achieved with certainty. This project compared the effectiveness of a new adhesive, Scotchbond Multi-Purpose Dental Adhesive System® (SBMP) with an established product, Gluma Bonding System® (Gluma) in preventing microleakage and the influence of storage, thermal and load cycling on microleakage patterns. In uncycled specimens, Gluma Bonding System had significantly less leakage (P < 0.01) at both occlusal and cervical margins. Thermocycling of composite restorations utilizing SBMP resulted in a significant decrease (P < 0.05) at the occlusal margins but had no effects on cervical leakage. Mechanical loading had no influence on leakage patterns either cervically or occlusally. Three months' storage and combined treatment resulted in a significant decrease in leakage (P < 0.05) at the occlusal margins. © 1996 Blackwell Science Ltd.
