Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the flexural strength values of five luting cements that are commonly used in dental restorations after exposed to hyperbaric pressure. Material and Methods: Five luting cements (polycarboxylate cement, glass ionomer luting cement, manual-mixed resin cement, and two auto-mixed resin cement) were prepared. (25 x 2 x 2 mm3) (n=16 for each) The specimens were divided into two subgroups (n=8) and were exposed to hyperbaric pressure (3 atm) 20 times for 30 minutes. The control groups stored in ambient pressure. Universal testing machine was used for flexural strength measurement with a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min. Results: One-way ANOVA test was used for statistical analysis, the differences in flexural strength values were additionally evaluated by Weibull Analysis. Glass ionomer and polycarboxylate cement were the most effected resins from hyperbaric pressure changes. Regardless of the pressure changes, the highest flexural strength values were seen for the self-adhesive resin cements and polycarboxylate cement showed the lowest strength value. Conclusion: Resin cements can be used for cementation of the dental restorations in divers and individuals who are subjected to hyperbaric pressure.
