Dentin to dentin adhesion using combinations of resin cements and adhesives from different manufacturers – a novel approach

The aims of this study were to present a novel method to analyse dentin bond strength and to evaluate the bond strength of combining adhesive systems and resin cement from different manufacturers. Based on the results and within the limitations of this laboratory study, it can be concluded that using alternating combinations of resin cement
and adhesives seem possible and that the resin cement were the weakest components in the bonded dentin-adhesive-cement-complex.

Protein Profiles of Individuals with Erosive Tooth Wear

The present work suggests that protein profiling in saliva may provide a tool for determining differences in risk for erosive tooth wear. This may be of value when determining lifetime risks of loss of dental structure. To identify the risk at an early stage of the disease gives us the opportunity to implement proper individualized prevention
