It is subjected to the eruption of the latter and to the physiological modifications of the temporary tooth. Moreover, this area is the site of...
[Filling composites. Experimental study of surface finishing by abrasion].
We have tested four rotary abrasive instruments on two composite resins: diamond burs, white Arkansas stones, silicon-carbide polishers, flexible polyurethane-based finishing and polishing disks. The results of the obtained measures of the surface roughness have enabled us to select a limited specif...
[Etiopathology of dry socket: current data].
