New review article: genetic aspects of dental erosive wear and dental caries - The high prevalence of dental erosion and dental caries among certain groups, and observations that not all individuals appear to be at risk, has sparked research on genetic effects related to these conditions.
Improved bonding of zirconia crowns with resin-based cement - Several pre-cementation procedures advocate enhancing adhesion between zirconia and resin-based cements. There is, however, limited documentation on how these pre-treatments affect the strength of high translucent zirconia.
Lack of training hinders best practice - While stainless-steel crowns (SSCs) are recommended for restorative treatment of teeth severely affected by caries, fractures or dental developmental disorders, they are not widely used. A new NIOM study among Norwegian and Finnish dentists explores why.
Pain new microbiologist at NIOM - NIOM is happy to announce that Maria Pain from the University of Tromsø has become the institute’s leading microbiologist. Pain has a Ph.D. in microbiology, and a M.Sc. in medical biology. Her focus, through work and study, has been the interaction between bacteria and their host.

Energy drink sales spike – teeth suffers - Energy drink sales in Norway are up 60 percent in the last year. The spike in sales have more and more dentist worried about increased damage to drinker’s teeth. A new article at Forskning.no explores the subject, bringing in the newest numbers and research. Among the experts consulted are NIOM’s Aida Mulic. Read the whole […]
In Memoriam - Jostein Pettersen who passed away on 1 June, was the very first employee of the Scandinavian Institute of Dental Materials as NIOM was named from its inception. He was office manager from 15 April 1972 until his retirement in 2002. Until Professor Ivar A. Mjör was appointed Institute Director on 1 January the following year, he was the only employee.
New collaborative article in Iceland’s Tannlæknablaðið - Reykjavik’s University’s Sigfus Thor Eliasson and NIOM’s John Tibballs and Jon Dahl, have just published a new article in the Icelandic dental journal Tannlæknablaðið. The topic is bonding, and the article is named “Effect of Adhesive Layer Thickness and Surface Treatments on Composite Repair Strength”. The study The aim of the study was to evaluate […]

Molecular layer deposition of photoactive metal-naphthalene hybrid thin films - Abstract We here report on photoactive organic-inorganic hybrid thin films prepared by the molecular layer deposition (MLD) method. The new series of hybrid films deposited using 2,6-naphthalenedicarboxylic acid (2,6-NDC) and either hafnium chloride (HfCl4), yttrium tetramethylheptanedionate (Y(thd)3) or titanium chloride (TiCl4) were compared with the known zirconium chloride (ZrCl4) based system. All metal-naphthalene films are […]
When to intervene in the caries process? An expert Delphi Consensus statement - This article gives recommendations on when to intervene in the caries process and existing caries lesions by non- or micro-invasive means or invasive/restorative strategies. The activity of the caries lesion, whether there is a cavity, and if it is possible to clean, are main factors to decide intervention level. In-active lesions need no treatment (exception […]
Pre-cementation procedures’ effect on dental zirconias with different yttria content - Several pre-cementation procedures have been advocated to enhance adhesion between zirconia and resin-based cement. There is, however, limited documentation on how these pre-treatments affect the strength of zirconia crowns as most tests are performed on discs or bars. The aim was to assess the effect of pre-cementation procedures on fracture mode, fracture strength and cement retention on zirconia.
