Characterisation of the antibacterial effect of polyethyleneimine nanoparticles in relation to particle distribution in resin composite.
To characterise the antibacterial effect of resin composite incorporating cross-linked quaternised polyethyleneimine (QPEI) nanoparticles in relation to their distribution in the bulk material. The antibacterial effect of resin composite incorporating QPEI nanoparticle was tested against various ora...
Strain measurements and fracture resistance of endodontically treated premolars restored with all-ceramic restorations.
I and IPE restorations restored cuspal stiffness to 75% of the sound tooth value. The O and OPE restored teeth had stiffness values greater than that of a sound tooth. The I, IPC, O, IPE, IPCPE and OPE restored teeth demonstrated fracture strength values of 938N±113N (s.d.), 1073N±176N and 1317N±219...
Effects of different sonic activation protocols on debridement efficacy in teeth with single-rooted canals.
The effects of different EndoActivator® (EA) sonic activation protocols on root canal debridement efficacy were examined. Root canals in 48 single-rooted teeth were instrumented, irrigated initially with NaOCl and divided into 6 groups (N=8) based on the application time of QMix (antimicrobial calci...
Effect of bulk/incremental fill on internal gap formation of bulk-fill composites.
I preparations. Cylindrical, Class I, 4-mm×4-mm preparations were made on 50 recently extracted human molars and restored using either a bulk-fill (SureFil SDR Flow (SDR), Quixx (QX), SonicFill (SF), Tetric EvoCeram Bulk (TEC)) or a conventional composite designed for 2-mm increments (Filtek Supreme...
Reproducibility of habitual intercuspation in vivo.
The aim of this in vivo study was to investigate how reproducible individuals find their habitual intercuspation. A new type of highly accurate measuring procedure was involved using an intraoral optical scanning device (Cerec Bluecam). First, a pilot test investigated the accuracy of the procedure...
Reusing electronic patient data for dental clinical research: a review of current status.
We included studies reusing electronic patient data for research on dental and craniofacial topics, alone or in combination with medical conditions, medications and outcomes. Studies using administrative or research databases and systematic reviews were excluded. Three reviewers extracted data indep...
In vivo spectrophotometric evaluation of pure enamel and enamel-dentine complex in relationship with different age groups.
The aim of this in vivo study was to investigate the influence of age on optical properties of pure enamel and enamel-dentine complex. A spectrophotometric study was performed on two different age groups: young (10-35 years old) and adult (36-60 years old). In both groups, the tooth's total area of...
Occlusal designs on masticatory ability and patient satisfaction with complete denture: a systematic review.
To systematically review clinical outcomes of different occlusal designs of complete dentures. Using a various key words, an electronic search of clinical trials published in English and Chinese literature was performed from four databases: Medline/PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and CBM. Furtherm...
Mineral content in teeth with deciduous molar hypomineralisation (DMH).
We report the mineral (hydroxyapatite) density of sound and opaque areas in DMH molars with sound parts of (carious) deciduous teeth serving as controls. Twenty-nine extracted second primary molars obtained from 15 children were studied. Thirteen of these molars were DMH molars with yellow opacities...
The whitening effect of chlorine dioxide--an in vitro study.
The aim of this study was to investigate the whitening properties and rate of bleaching action of chlorine dioxide and compare them with those of hydrogen peroxide of similar concentration. Sixty bovine central incisor crowns were ground and polished until flat surfaces were obtained. The crowns wer...
