Resumo

The goals of this study were to measure the water sorption (WS) and solubility (SO) of 3 composite resins containing different filler contents. Additionally, the size, shape, type and other characteristics of fillers were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Three composites, classified according to filler size, were selected: Filtek Supreme nanofill (3M/ESPE), Esthet-X minifill (Dentsply/Caulk) and Renamel microfill (Cosmedent Inc.). Ten disk-shaped specimens of each resin composite were made and stored in desiccators until constant mass was achieved. Specimens were then stored in water for 7 days, and the mass of each specimen was measured. The specimens were dried again and dried specimen mass determined. The WS and SO were calculated from these measurements. Data analyzed by one-way ANOVA and Tukey's post-hoc test (?=0.05). Composite filler particles were observed under SEM after removal of resin matrix by organic solvents. WS values were not significantly different among the resins; however, SO values were lower for Filtek Supreme. The materials presented differences in filler contents (e.g. particle size and shape). The composite resins had similar WS, while the SO was lower for the nanofill than for mini and microfill resins. The filler characteristics varied and were different among the materials. (AU)
