Preparation of a fluorinated dental resin system and its anti-adhesive properties against S. mutans -

Resin system prepared exclusively with fluorinated methacrylate monomers reduced the S. mutans adhesion due to their increased hydrophobicity and decreased surface energy. Compared with Bis-GMA/TEGDMA, the FDMA/FBMA resin system also exhibited higher double bond conversion and lower water sorption and solubility
