Dental ceramics – Classification and properties -

Different dental ceramics available today including a classification, mechanical properties and a description of processing techniques with emphasis on the zirconia materials.

Dentale restaureringsmaterialer: Biologiske egenskaper og deres kliniske konsekvenser -

Tandrestaureringsmaterialer indeholder en mængde forskellige stoffer med ulige biologiske egenskaber. I mundhulen udsættes materialerne for både mekaniske, kemiske, mikrobielle og enzymatiske påvirkninger, og substanser kan frigives fra materialerne

Occlusal Caries Management: Preferences among Dentists in Norway -

The aim was to measure variations in the threshold for operative treatment of occlusal caries in permanent teeth and the use of dental materials, compared with results from a similar study conducted in Norway in 1995.

Sub-lethal Concentrations of HEMA alter Protein Expression in Human Monocytes -

Several in vitro studies have shown increased intracellular level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) after exposure to 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), a commonly used monomer in resin-based dental materials. This study aimed to investigate the initial changes of the proteome in a human monocyte cell line after exposure to HEMA by using Stable Isotope Labelling with Amino Acids in Cell culture (SILAC).

Antibacterial effects of native and methacrylate modified chitosan -

Commercial resin-based composites are mainly composed of dimethacrylate-based monomers, such as triethyleneglycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA), inorganic fillers and a coupling agent. Cured resinbased composites have no antibacterial effect against oral bacteria and half of all fillings replaced are because of new caries . Chitosan is a natural carbohydrate polymer derived from the deacetylation of chitin. Chitosan has been shown to have an inhibitor effect on the adherence of oral bacteria onto human tooth surfaces.
