Further study details as provided by 3M:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Retention of the Restoration [ Time Frame: one year ]
    Bonded filling still in place

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical performance of the study restoration [ Time Frame: one year ]
    Restoration in satisfactory clinical function at one year

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: February 2013
Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: Adper Easy Bond Self-etch dental adhesive
    Bonding composite to restore Class I or Class II cavities
    Other Name: self etch adhesive with enamel etch
Detailed Description:
There is scant evidence available on the performance of self-etching dental adhesive systems. This study aims to clinically evaluate a self-etch adhesive used either with an extra enamel etching step, or in a self-etch stand alone technique with no extra enamel etch.
