Pawel Kallas and Krister Gjestvang Grønlien are PhD candidates from the University of Oslo who have recently come to NIOM to work on collaborative projects. Kallas is a PhD candidate in the Department of Biomaterials, Faculty of Dentistry and Grønlien is a PhD...
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.
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.read more
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.read more
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.read more
When considering patient safety, the quality and adequate function of a material or device is given by its mechanical strength, chemical stability and biocompatibility. Standards allow for ease of trade, since the product or service is well described, so that the manufacturer and the consumer have a common understanding of its expected performance.read more
Learn the latest within dental adhesive techinques in a webinar we hope you will find both inspirational and useful. NIOM scientist Frode Staxrud, DDS shares with you his do’s and don’t’s of dental bonding procedures. As general practitioner working with patients on...read more
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.
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.
NIOM has established a programme for the quality evaluation of a number of dental products. The evaluation is based on testing of the products according to methods in relevant ISO and other standards, or according to other well-established and documented test methods. Products fulfilling the set requirements are granted permission to use the NIOM TESTED quality seal. The NIOM TESTED quality seal confirms that the product meets the requirements specified by NIOM.
