HEMA reduced GSH levels and decreased IL-1β release from LPS-stimulated macrophages. The role of GSH in the regulation of IL-1β release was explored. GSH depletion alone could not explain the attenuation of LPS-induced IL-1β release. Electrophile reactivity toward other cellular molecules is a new working hypothesis
The study aimed to investigate dentists’ exposure to curing light and to obtain information about the dentists’ knowledge on practical use and technical features of their curing lights as well as their safety awareness.
One of the most significant medical achievements in human medicine during the 20th century was the discovery and introduction of antibiotics. However, a short time after the introduction of new antibiotic compounds, resistant bacteria were discovered.
NIOM’s purpose is to ensure that the dental materials and products, used in dental care in the Nordic countries, meet the health and technical requirements which are in place regarding development in the area.
Restorative dental treatment still lays claim to a large proportion of dentists’ working day. After the phase-out of amalgam as a restorative material, composite resin has become the dominating material of choice among dentists.
Abstract In this article we are looking at the development of composite restorative materials. We discuss the composition of the resin matrix, and describe the introduction of some new monomers. We also comment on the development of fillers. Some materials are discussed in more detail. Bulk-fill materials do not seem to be essentially different to […]
