Arne Hensten, a frontrunner in the world of dentistry, retires

It is with the greatest appreciation we, his colleagues at NIOM, wish dr. odont Arne Hensten a long and healthy retirement. He has been our “grand old man”, tirelessly accumulating and sharing knowledge since he was first employed with us as a researcher in 1974.

Enjoying NIOM’s new direction

Enjoying NIOM’s new direction

– In the past few years, it seems that NIOM’s focus has broadened to include a new range of biomaterials. Maybe because there has been an influx of new people, and new ideas. I find this exciting, says current guest researcher at NIOM, associate professor Qalbi Khan.

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.

LABORATORIES

NIOM TESTED

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.
