To discuss the effectiveness of chlorhexidine (CHX) used as therapeutic dentin primer in adhesively bonded composite restorations. Overview: An electronic search in MEDLINE database, accessed through PubMed was conducted. No restrictions of languages and date of publication were made. The following key words were used: “chlorhexidine”, “composite” and “composite resins.” Clinical studies in which CHX was used during bonding procedures were included in this review. Six studies met the inclusion criteria. Of these, five studies were carried out on noncarious cervical lesions (NCCL). Only one study was carried out on class II preparation of permanent molars. In all studies, either etch-and-rinse and self-etch adhesive systems were used during bonding procedures. On the basis of the reviewed clinical trials, it can be concluded that CHX primer application does not seem to influence clinical outcome of composite restorations. Clinical significance: Current scientific evidence cannot neither strongly recommend nor discourage the application of CHX as therapeutic primer in composite restorations. Studies with longer follow-up periods with adhesive restorations placed on dentin after caries removal, rather than only on NCCL, are desirable to further investigate the therapeutic effect of CHX during bonding procedures.

Abstract

To discuss the effectiveness of chlorhexidine (CHX) used as therapeutic dentin primer in adhesively bonded composite restorations. Overview: An electronic search in MEDLINE database, accessed through PubMed was conducted. No restrictions of languages and date of publication were made. The following key words were used: “chlorhexidine”, “composite” and “composite resins.” Clinical studies in which CHX was used during bonding procedures were included in this review. Six studies met the inclusion criteria. Of these, five studies were carried out on noncarious cervical lesions (NCCL). Only one study was carried out on class II preparation of permanent molars. In all studies, either etch-and-rinse and self-etch adhesive systems were used during bonding procedures. On the basis of the reviewed clinical trials, it can be concluded that CHX primer application does not seem to influence clinical outcome of composite restorations. Clinical significance: Current scientific evidence cannot neither strongly recommend nor discourage the application of CHX as therapeutic primer in composite restorations. Studies with longer follow-up periods with adhesive restorations placed on dentin after caries removal, rather than only on NCCL, are desirable to further investigate the therapeutic effect of CHX during bonding procedures.
