Role of thiol-complex formation in 2-hydroxyethyl-methacrylate-induced toxicity in vitro -

Methacrylate monomers that are found to leach from cured resin-based dental materials induce biological effects in vitro. The underlying mechanisms have not been fully elucidated although involvement of increased cellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) and DNA-damage has been suggested

Filler Particles Used in Dental Biomaterials Induce Production and Release of Inflammatory Mediators In Vitro -

Although dental composites are in extensive use today, little is known about the biological effects of the filler particles. As composite materials are gradually broken down in the aggressive environment of the oral cavity, the filler particles may leak and induce toxic effects on the surrounding tissue and cells
