Presence of 6PPD-quinone in runoff water samples from Norway using a new LC–MS/MS method -

The chemical 6PPD-quinone is highly toxic to some fish species of the Oncorhynchus and Salvelinus genera and is the oxidation product of the common car tire additive 6PPD. We present a new sample preparation method that involves liquid-liquid extraction of water samples followed by silica-based solid phase extraction prior to LC–MS/MS analysis. The new sample preparation method showed good […]

Silver release from dentine treated with combinations of silver diamine fluoride, potassium iodide and etching -

For individuals with very high to extremely high caries activity and poor control of daily oral hygiene, a simple treatment for arresting their caries activity is necessary. Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) has become increasingly common for this purpose due to its efficacy and ease of application. To avoid or reduce tooth discoloration after SDF treatment […]

Preparation of a fluorinated dental resin system and its anti-adhesive properties against S. mutans -

Resin system prepared exclusively with fluorinated methacrylate monomers reduced the S. mutans adhesion due to their increased hydrophobicity and decreased surface energy. Compared with Bis-GMA/TEGDMA, the FDMA/FBMA resin system also exhibited higher double bond conversion and lower water sorption and solubility

Oral lesions associated with daily use of snus, a moist smokeless tobacco product. A cross-sectional study among Norwegian adolescents -

Use of snus, a moist, smokeless tobacco product, may lead to local changes in the oral mucous membrane in the area where the snus is placed. It can also cause irreversible gingival retraction. This cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the relationship between use of snus, oral mucosal lesions (snus induced lesions) and gingival retractions among adolescents in Norway.

Association of locus Xq26.1 – 27.3 with Erosive Tooth Wear Phenotypes in a Group of Adolescents -

Erosive tooth wear is a multifactorial condition of an increasing prevalence. There is a need for discovering individual genetic predisposition for the development of this condition. Considering that the chromosome X locus was shown to be associated with dental caries, the aim of the present study was to look for the association between this locus […]
