Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the surface roughness of Cention N and Filtek Z350 XT resin composite. Null Hypothesis: There is no difference observed in surface roughness between the Cention N and Filtek Z350 XT resin composite. Introduction: The use of resin composites in restorative dentistry has markedly increased in recent years due to increased demand for esthetics. The advent of novel fluoride-releasing resin composite Cention N has brought enormous benefits. Finishing and polishing of composite resin restorations are essential steps in restorative dentistry. However, there are no studies available in literatures regarding the effective use of Soflex finishing and polishing with Cention N. Hence, the purpose of the study was to evaluate the surface roughness of novel resin composite Cention N and compare with Filtek Z350 XT resin composite. Materials and Methods: Sixty-four specimens were prepared in Teflon plastic mold of 8-mm diameter and 2-mm thickness, and were divided into group 1 (Filtek Z350 XT [n = 32]) and group 2 (Cention N [n = 32]). They were further subdivided into group 1A (Matrix finish [n = 16]) and 1B (Soflex [n = 16]), and group 2A (Matrix finish [n = 16]) and 2B (Soflex [n = 16]). Surface roughness was measured using surface profilometer. Results: When comparing the mean values and standard deviations of surface roughness of four groups using one-way ANOVA, it was found that there was a significant difference (P < 0.001) in mean surface roughness between the four groups. Conclusion: All the groups presented the values that are below or approximating baseline value for bacterial or plaque retention.

| Introduction|| |
An increase in surface roughness can result in surface discoloration, plaque accumulation, gingival inflammation, and caries leading to poor esthetics.
A surface roughness threshold of below 0.2 µm is necessary to prevent bacterial adhesion and plaque accumulation., Finishing and polishing of composite resin restorations are essential steps in restorative dentistry. The structural disparity between the resin matrix and fillers makes it difficult to achieve surface smoothness.
Reduced filler size with better structural uniformity is more favored regarding the surface smoothness of these materials. Hence, there is extensive utilization of resin nanocomposites in restorative dentistry.
The advent of novel fluoride-releasing resin composite Cention N has brought enormous benefits.
Matrix finish achieved during polymerization is known to be the best surface finish with resin composite materials. However, the restorations require further contouring and result in the polymer-rich layer, which require finally finishing and polishing.
A variety of instruments are commonly used for finishing and polishing tooth-colored restorative materials. Aluminum-oxide-impregnated finishing and polishing systems are widely used to finish and polish the resin composite restoration for better outcome (Gedik et al. and Gulati and Gulati). Soflex wheels are flexible, color-coded, two-step finishing and polishing systems made of an elastomer impregnated with aluminum oxide particles.
However, there are no studies available in literatures regarding the effective use of Soflex finishing and polishing with Cention N. Hence, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the surface roughness of novel resin composite Cention N and compare with Filtek Z350 XT resin composite
| Materials and Method|| |
Sixty-four specimens were prepared in Teflon plastic mold of 8-mm diameter and 2-mm thickness.
A glass microscope slide was placed over the polyester strip to minimize polymerization reaction inhibition by oxygen. Polymerization was achieved with variable intensity LED light (blue phase C8 for 20s). In Soflex finish group, specimens were finished and polished for 45s, rinsed for 10s, and air-dried for 5 s. Surface roughness measurements were taken using surface profilometer (Taylor Hobson, Thurmaston, Leicester, England) at different locations. The mean value of the three measurements for each specimen was tabulated and subjected to statistical analysis.
| Results|| |
Tukey post hoc test was conducted for pair-wise comparison between the groups. It was found that there was a significant difference in mean surface roughness between
- group 1A and group 2A,
- group 1A and group 2B, and
- group 1B and group 2B.
There was no significant difference observed in mean surface roughness between [Table 3]
- group 1A and group 1B,
- group 1B and group 2A, and
- group 2A and group 2B.
| Discussion|| |
Finishing is the gross contouring of restoration to obtain the desired anatomy. Polishing is the process carried out to reduce surface roughness and removal of scratches created by the finishing instrument.
There is a statistically significant difference between the tested groups. Hence the null hypothesis is rejected. Group 1A is showing the best surface finish with an Ra value of 0.1631 µm [Table 1] and [Table 2], and [Figure 1]. Both the tested materials with the matrix finish showed better results compared to the groups finished using Soflex finishing and polishing system. This is in accordance with the observations in the studies conducted by Magdy et al. and Aytac et al.

Although there is a better surface finish with the use of a matrix with both the tested materials, there is no statistically significant difference between the matrix group and Soflex group [Figure 1]. This is in accordance with the observations in the studies conducted by Kritzinger and Brandt.
Clinically acceptable Ra values for esthetic restorative materials are shown to be less than “0.2 µm” in various studies., In this study, both the test materials are shown to have clinically acceptable surface roughness values.
| Conclusion|| |
Within the limitations of the study, Filtek Z350 XT mylar matrix strip finish group exhibited lowest surface roughness value (Ra). Cention N Soflex finishing and polishing group exhibited highest surface roughness value (Ra).
