    51. 51. Discussion
    52. 52. <ul><li>Results were higher for both cements compared to Goracci et al who used a “thin slice’’ push- out test and transmission electron microscopy. The tested adhesive cements were VariolinkII (10 ±3 MPa) Rely X Unicem(5.05± 3) Panavia (5.04±3) </li></ul>
    53. 53. <ul><li>This study showed no difference in bond strength between the coronal, middle, apical third with both cements in contrast to Carlos 2007 thesis. </li></ul><ul><li>This study agrees with Zicari F et al, who reported not significantly difference among the coronal. middle and apical sections for each luting cements </li></ul><ul><li>BS was measured for Panavia 21(12.6 ±3) Unicem(11± 4) VariolinkII(11±4 ) </li></ul><ul><li>A 20 gauge Endo-Eze tip that reached the apical root canal area ensured the delivery of the conditioner to the deepest part portion of the canal </li></ul>
    54. 54. <ul><li>The type of sealer used has no effect on values of bond strength which agrees with S.T Davis et al, </li></ul><ul><li>no significant difference with non eugenol (190 ±55) and eugenol (183± 56) </li></ul><ul><li>Teeth were irrigated with water for cleaning purpose before cementation. No sodium hypochlorite were used. Which might effect retention. A study by Hale A et al.(2003) showed that 5% NaOCL reduce the bond strength to dentin of Panavia F,C&B Metabond, ViriolinkII </li></ul>
    55. 55. <ul><li>Dye penetration technique was subjective </li></ul><ul><li>Sealing the root canal coronal and apical parts of the root canal is equally important for the success of treatment </li></ul>
    56. 56. Conclusion
    57. 57. <ul><li>The results agreed with the null hypothesis in both experiments </li></ul><ul><li>Within the limitation of the study, it can be concluded that the use of self- adhesive or self-etch luting system had the same action on retention </li></ul><ul><li>The eugenol containing and Glass Ionomer containing sealer have no effect on values of bond strength </li></ul><ul><li>ZOE and Glass Ionomer did not show ideal sealing, and both groups had leakage </li></ul>
    58. 58. Future Studies <ul><li>Further research on other aged teeth with eugenol, does fresh eugenol have a greater effect? </li></ul><ul><li>Comparing total etch with different delivery systems to self adhesive cements all three with the same delivery system. </li></ul><ul><li>More studies should be conducted using resin materials to improve the bond strength to dentin with the endodontic treated teeth. </li></ul>
