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.

Effect of curing and silanizing on composite repair bond strength using an improved micro-tensile test method -

To evaluate the micro-tensile repair bond strength between aged and new composite, using silane and adhesives that were cured or left uncured when new composite was placed.

In vitro cell death induced by irradiation and chemicals relevant for dental applications; dose-response and potentiation effects. -

Abstract Resin-based dental materials polymerized using blue light are frequently used in dental practice and may come in contact with the oral mucosa. Remnants from oral hygiene product ingredients, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), add to the chemical exposure of the mucosa. The aim of the present in vitro study was to elucidate the […]

Irritation test of tissue adhesives for facial prostheses. -

Adhesives are commonly used to improve the retention of a facial prosthesis to the skin. Although no requirement exists for facial prosthetic adhesives, an adhesive should be nonirritating and nontoxic.
