The aim of this in vivo study was to evaluate the interfacial adaptation of Class II resin composite open sandwich restorations with a polyacid-modified resin composite as a stress-absorbing layer (PMRC/RC). Twenty Class II box-shaped, enamel-bordered cavities were prepared in 10 premolars scheduled to be extracted for orthodontic reasons. An open PMRC/RC sandwich restoration was placed in 1 of the cavities of each tooth. The first layer, PMRC, in the proximal box extended to the periphery in the cervical part of the cavity. The following RC layers were placed with a horizontally incremental technique. The PMRC was excluded from the control cavity. The teeth were extracted after 1 month and the interfacial adaptation of the restorations was studied with quantitative scanning electron microscope analysis using a replicate technique. Gap-free interfacial adaptation was observed for the PMRC/RC and RC restorations in cervical enamel in 97% and 73%, respectively (P = 0.006). The gap-free scores for dentin were 87% and 64%, respectively (P = 0.022). Excellent interfacial adaptation was observed in both groups for the occlusal enamel 99% and 100%, respectively. The adaptation to occlusal enamel for the direct resin composite restorations was significantly better than to dentin or cervical enamel. A higher frequency of enamel fractures was observed parallel to the cervical margins compared to the occlusal. No dentin fractures were observed in the experimental groups. The PMRC/RC sandwich technique showed a statistically significant improved interfacial adaptation to dentin and cervical enamel in Class II enamel-bordered cavities. The clinical significance of the differences has to be evaluated.
