Dental erosive wear – a growing problem in the Nordic countries - The data analysed in the study indicated both wide prevalence and high severity of dental erosion among adolescents. The authors stress the importance of information, early and effective diagnostics and implementation of prevention strategies.
Improved micro-tensile strength test reveals key to successful repair of restorations - A more reliable and less time-consuming test method to evaluate the micro-tensile strength of the repair bond between old and new composites has recently been published. The improved test method is based on studies carried out previously at NIOM.
NIOM scientists develop new etching technique for zirconia ceramics – improves adhesion of resin cements - NIOM scientists have developed a surface etching technique that improves adhesion between resin cement and zirconia. This new method called Melt Etching is based on melting of fluoride compounds, and can be readily adapted by dental technicians.
NIOM and guest scientists celebrate Finland’s centenary - The 6th of December marks 100 years of independence for Finland. The theme for the celebratory year is “Together,” showing that everyone – Finns and friends of Finns – is welcome to take part, just as creating and building the nation were joint efforts.
Guest researchers from Finland and Greece - NIOM has recently welcomed two new guest researchers. Mervi Puska from Finland and Foteini Machla from Greece.
NIOM Visiting Scientist presents findings at Finnish Dental Congress - How do choices of restorative materials following pulpotomy in primary molars affect children who attended public oral health services? Battsetseg Tseveenjav has looked at this.
Tanntekniker / Teknisk medarbeider - Det er ledig en fast stilling som teknisk medarbeider ved Nordisk institutt for odontologiske materialer (NIOM). Vi søker primært etter en tanntekniker, men annen relevant teknisk utdanning er også interessant. Søker bør ha utdannelse på bachelor-nivå; arbeidserfaring kan oppveie for manglende formell utdannelse.
Ledig 60 % forskerstilling - Det er ledig fast 60 % stilling som forsker ved Nordisk Institutt for Odontologiske Materialer (NIOM). Helse- og omsorgsdepartementet har styrket NIOMs budsjett for videreutvikling av kompetansen innen klinisk materialforskning i samarbeid med de regionale odontologiske kompetansesentrene i Norge og med kliniske fagmiljøer i Norden. Stillingen er et ledd i å styrke denne kompetansen, og forskeren vil inngå i det samlede forskermiljøet ved NIOM.
NIOM at Suomen Hammaslääkäripäivät Apollonia, Helsinki - NIOM has a stand at the Finnish annual meeting and dental trade fair, taking place right now, from Nov 23rd-25th. Make sure you swing by and sign up so you can stay up to date withresearch relevant to your clinical workday.

Antibacterial Activity of Endodontic Sealers against Planktonic Bacteria and Bacteria in Biofilms. - Antibacterial activity of 4 endodontic sealers against bacteria planktonic grown or in biofilms commonly detected from persistent and secondary endodontic infections. Investigating the antibacterial activity of endodontic sealers and materials against bacteria in biofilms is highly important to evaluate the materials' ability to eradicate bacteria from the infected root canal
Internal fit of three-unit fixed dental prostheses produced by computeraided design/computer-aided manufacturing and the lost-wax metal casting technique assessed using the triple-scan protocol - Suboptimal adaptation of fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) can lead to technical and biological complications. It is unclear if the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technique improves adaptation of FDPs compared with FDPs made using the lost-wax and metal casting technique.
Kontrol og bekæmpelse af dental biofilm - Control and eradication of dental biofilm. This article gives a brief overview of antimicrobial compounds used for biofilm control and new technologies and strategies to combat dental biofilms.
