Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of chlorhexidine dentin treatment on the microtensile dentin bond strength of different adhesive systems (etc-hand-rinse, self-etch and universal) at different storage times (72 hours, 3 months and 6 months).
The shear bond strength was then determined using universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min utilizing a device constructed to direct the shearing force on the dentin to restorative material interface.
Thus, microtensile bond strength in Mega Pascals (MPA) for each specimen was calculated using the following formula.
