OptiBond All-In-One 35.6 ± 15.2AB 28.2 ± 6.2AB

  1. Data are the mean ± S.D., MPa; n = 10
  2. Same capital superscript letters indicate that ultimate tensile strength values were not significantly different among each group in the same water storage period (p > 0.05)
  3. Same small superscript letters indicate that ultimate tensile strength values were not significantly different among each adhesive in the same water storage period (p > 0.05)
  4. ANOVA results could not be detected the significant difference for “storage period” (horizontal raws)
  5. * Not applicable because adhesive could not be hardened even after sufficient light exposure
