Özet

This study evaluated the sealing ability and push-out bond strength of two luting cements cured with two different types of light curing units (LCU): light-emitting diode (LED) versus quartz tungsten halogen (QTH). Forty teeth were divided into four groups (n=10/group). Quartz fiber posts (D.T. Light-Post) were luted to coronal or apical section of root canals using two types of resin cements (Panavia F or RelyX) cured with either LED LCU (Elipar FreeLight II) or QTH LCU (Optilux 501). Highest push-out bond strength was exhibited by QTH-cured RelyX, which was not significantly different from LED-cured RelyX but was higher than QTH-cured Panavia F. The push-out bond strength of Panavia F did not differ with LCU type (p>0.05), but exhibited lower values than both QTH- and LED-cured RelyX. Fluid filtration test revealed that sealing ability was not influenced by luting cement type, but was significantly influenced by LCU type in favor of QTH light source: QTH-cured specimens displayed better seal than LED-cured ones (p<0.05).
