Purpose, structure, and function of the United States National Dental Practice-Based Research Network.
Following a successful 2005-2012 phase with three regional practice-based research networks (PBRNs), a single, unified national network called "The National Dental PBRN" was created in 2012 in the United States to improve oral health by conducting practice-based research and serving dental professio...
Influence of procedural variations during the laboratory phase of complete denture fabrication on patient satisfaction and denture quality.
To compare subjective and objective outcomes of complete dentures fabricated with standard clinical protocols, but omitted selected steps during the laboratory phase. Forty-three edentulous patients (mean age 58.1 years, SD 9.9, range 35-78), were consecutively recruited and randomly assigned to one...
Developing a custom dental porcelain shade system for computer color matching.
This study aims to update the computer color matching method by generating a new ceramic shade system that covers the entire spectrum of natural tooth color and has an efficient design. First, the color map of 176 maxillary natural incisors and two commercially available and commonly used shade guid...
Optical effects of different colors of artificial gingiva on ceramic crowns.
We measured the shade of crowns in cervical areas with each of six different artificial gingiva. The crown color measured in the presence of pink artificial gingiva (control) was compared with the crown color with five other artificial gingiva. color difference values ΔE* were calculated and compare...
In situ effect of chewing gum containing CPP-ACP on the mineral precipitation of eroded bovine enamel-A surface hardness analysis.
Stimulation of salivary flow is considered a preventive strategy for dental erosion. Alternatively, products containing calcium phosphate, such as a complex of casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP), have also been tested against dental erosion. Therefore, this in situ study ana...
A ZnO-doped adhesive reduced collagen degradation favouring dentine remineralization.
The objective of the study was to determine the efficacy of a ZnO-doped etch and rinse adhesive in decreasing MMPs-mediated collagen degradation at the resin-dentine hybrid layer, and increasing bonding stability. C-terminal telopeptide concentrations (ICTP) were determined after 24h, 1wk and 4wk in...
Inhibition of erosive dissolution by sodium fluoride: evidence for a dose-response.
The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effects of sodium fluoride solutions and commercial mouthrinses on hydroxyapatite (HA) dissolution in citric acid in vitro, with and without a salivary pellicle. A rapid-throughput HA solubility-reduction model was employed in which HA dissolut...
Optical properties of enamel and translucent composites by diffuse reflectance measurements.
The optical constants S and K decreased with increased wavelength, while RI and X(∞) increased with increasing wavelength within the visible spectrum. The values of enamel were in the range of the optical constants of these composites within the visible spectrum. However, there were signiﬁcant d...
Silver compounds used in dentistry for caries management: a review.
In vitro, in vivo and clinical evidence has demonstrated that silver compounds are viable agents for preventing and arresting caries both in the primary and permanent dentition; however they are associated with adverse tooth discolouration and some reports that pulp irritation may occur. Further res...
Colour stability and opacity of resin cements and flowable composites for ceramic veneer luting after accelerated ageing.
Colour changes of the luting material can become clinically visible affecting the aesthetic appearance of thin ceramic laminates. The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the colour stability and opacity of light- and dual-cured resin cements and flowable composites after accelerated ageing.
