Electrostimulation therapy for dry mouth - Feeling of dry mouth, often called xerostomia, is not considered a serious medical condition in itself, but it can cause complications like tooth decay and mouth sores. Treating it is therefore imperative for good oral health. A recent paper explores electrostimulation as a treatment option.
Wear on and inside implants - Wear on the different parts of a dental implant, can cause particle release as well as shorten the lifetime of the implant. A recently published study at NIOM in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg looked at particle release from dental implants in saliva during dynamic loading.
Forensic identification of deceased persons with no dental restorations? - Since 1984, Interpol has used three primary identifiers to establish the identity of a deceased person. The identifiers are fingerprint analysis, DNA analysis and comparative dental analysis. While fingerprinting is mostly the same, DNA-analysis has improved and dental analysis has become more complex.
New webinar out now - Curious about 3D-printing in dentistry? Watch our newest webinar and learn about principles and techniques. She also cover challenges of resin printing, material properties and clinical aspects.
Visit at Eastman Institute - We at NIOM were so lucky to get to visit Eastman Institute in Stockholm last week. We were welcomed by Andreas Cederlund, Wedad Hammoudi and the rest of their personnel. It was a most interesting visit, where we got a tour, joined in on some interesting discussions, and heard the latest about their project KompetensTräningsCentrum. […]
Vacant positions as visiting scientist at NIOM during 2023 - Vacant positions as visiting scientist at NIOM during 2023. Positions as visiting scientist in the field of dental and medical biomaterials research are offered at the Nordic Institute of Dental Materials, NIOM, in Oslo, Norway.
NIOM turns 50! - NIOM, The Nordic Institute of Dental Materials, celebrates its 50th anniversary on Thursday the 12th of May. The institute marks the occasion with a seminar led by the renowned Christine Calvert, with lectures by philosopher Henrik Syse, as well as dental researchers from across the Nordics.
Staxrud in Antalya - This week, NIOMs Frode Staxrud, will participate in the European Federation of Conservative Dentistry, the EFCDs meeting in Antalya, Turkey. Staxrud will speak on the subject of minimally invasive dentistry, when and how a dentist might intervene.
New guest researchers at NIOM - NIOM has welcomed five new visiting scientists this fall. They are; Wedad Hammoudi from Sweden, Sigfus Eliasson from Iceland, and from Norway, Sunita Sharma, Amela Tulek, and Anneli Skjold. Hammoudi and Skjold are working with different aspects like esthetics and strength of zirconia for dental applications. Eliasson has an ongoing project on procedures for long […]

Effect of chlorhexidine digluconate on antimicrobial activity, cell viability and physicochemical properties of three endodontic sealers - The main hypothesis of the study as rejected as exposure to CHX affected sealers’ properties. CHX in contact with sealer surfaces improved the antibacterial properties of the sealer leachates and reduced cell viability for all sealer leachates, except for freshly mixed PCS. Among the tested sealers, BioRoot RCS leachates presented the highest antibacterial properties and cell viability with and without CHX contact.
Photoactive Zr-aromatic hybrid thin films made by molecular layer deposition - In this work, we have developed a new MLD process for fabricating photoactive hybrid thin films based on Zr clusters and aromatic 25D-BDC organic linkers. The amorphous and uniform films display high absorption in the visible part of the spectrum. Moreover, we show that the type of the organic ligand and its functional groups can be used to tune the optical properties of Zr-organic hybrids, as shown by the Zr-2A-BDC and Zr-26-NDC systems in this work.
Potential of «universal» bonding agents for composite repair - In this in vitro study, testing shear bond strength of composite-to-composite bonding, the new universal bonding agents performed similar and for some agents better than the ‘Gold Standard’, 3-step etch-and-rinse bonding agent. New simplified bonding procedures seem reliable for repair of composite.
