OBJECTIVES: To determine the degree of conversion (DC) over 48h post-curing of resin mixtures containing trimethylbenzoyl-diphenylphosphine oxide (TPO) initiator cured by a polywave or a monowave LED light-curing unit (LCU). METHODS: In resin mixtures based on equal weight percent (wt%) of BisGMA and TEGDMA the following initiators were added: 0.2wt% camphorquinone (CQ)+0.8wt% ethyl-4-dimethylaminobenzoate (EDMAB) (Group 1); 1wt% TPO (Group 2) and 0.1wt% CQ+0.4wt% EDMAB+0.5wt% TPO (Group 3). Half of the samples in each group (n=5) were cured using a polywave (bluephase(®) G2, Ivoclar Vivadent) or a monowave LED LCU (bluephase(®), Ivoclar Vivadent). The DC was measured using micro-Raman spectroscopy within 5min and then 1, 3, 6, 24 and 48h post-irradiation. The data were analysed using general linear model and two-way ANOVA for the factors 'time', 'material', 'surface' and 'LCU' at α=0.05. RESULTS: The initial DC values obtained upon light curing remained similar over a 48h period. bluephase(®) G2 produced the highest DC in Group 2 followed by Group 3, and Group 1. bluephase(®) resulted in the highest DC in Group 1, followed by Group 2 and Group 3 (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Unfilled resin materials containing both TPO- and CQ-amine initiators are effectively cured using bluephase(®) G2. Resin mixture with the same wt% of initiators is better cured when TPO is the only initiator, compared to CQ-amine only or combined TPO and CQ-amine system. After initial light cure, no additional conversion of uncured monomers was detected in an unfilled resin material over 48h at 37°C.
