The bonding performance of a surface pre-reacted glass ionomer (S-PRG) filler-containing self-adhesive flowable resin composites to enamel and dentin were evaluated using a tensile bond test with thermal cycling. Also, the quantities of various ions released from the materials were measured using ICP atomic emission spectrometry and a fluoride ion electrode. The initial bond strengths of the materials were approximately 6 MPa, and decreased after thermal cycling. The S-PRG filler-containing self-adhesive flowable resin composites materials exhibited much higher ion release compared with the commercial self-adhesive flowable resin composite possibly due to different acidic monomers contained. It was suggested that the S-PRG filler containing self-adhesive flowable resin composites should be limited as a lining material or to restore small cavities in non-stress bearing areas.
