Abstract:

The alkyl-alpha-cyanoacrylates have recently gained increased attention in both medical and dental professions. In dentistry, these monomers have been investigated for use as liners, pit and fissure sealants, and more recently as luting agents, hemostatic dressings and temporary tissue adhesives. While earlier work has been limited to the rapidly degradable and more toxic methyl ester, recent studies have been expanded to include the more biostable higher homologs. Of these, the n-butyl-alpha-cyanoacryplate has gained the widest attention. The purpose of the study has been to assess the usefulness of butyl cyanoacryplate in restorative dentistry. For this purpose, polymerization characteristics and physical properties of the unfilled and variously filled resin were investigated. Author
