The purpose of this study is to compare and determine the role of H3P04 and polyacrylic acid in shear bond strength of Fuji II LC and Compoglass on dentin of primary teeth.

Method & Materials
90 sound primary molars were selected. Enamel reduction was done until smooth dentinal occlusal surface was achieved. The teeth then were randomly divided into six groups. A plastic mold was prepared and selected material was applied in half of the mold and light cured. The samples were stored in an incubator. Then the samples were thermo cycled. The shear bond strength was determined with an Instron Machine.

The results showed a significant difference in mean shear bond strength for Compoglass between etched and unetched dentin (P Value=O.00<0.05). The mean shear bond strength between Compoglass with unetched dentin and Fuji II LC with pretreatment dentin by polyacrylic acid was not significantly different.

Key Word
Shear bond strength, R-MGI, Compomer, Primary teeth.
