How can dental materials be made better? -

Future resin-based dental materials must combat the reasons current materials fail, mainly secondary caries and fracture, but still be easy for the dentist to use and safe for the patient.

Colour assessment. How good are you? -

Finding the best colour match for your restorations, crowns and bridges, is often frustrating, but do not despair, as training and practice makes you better and more confident.

Effect of methacrylated chitosan incorporated in experimental composite and adhesive on mechanical properties and biofilm formation -

The results of this study show that CH-MA (CH-MA) may be incorporated into a composite and into an adhesive to reduce biofilm formation on their surfaces. The mechanical properties of the composite were challenged, but flexural strength measurements still met the requirement set in ISO 4049, whereas no differences were observed for the bonding properties of the adhesives.

Energy drinks – a health problem for youths? -

Are energy drinks hazardous to your health? Can acidic beverages cause erosions? What are the risks of drinking energy drinks and caffeine?

Thermal induced deflection of a porcelain–zirconia bilayer: Influence of cooling rate -
