Adhesion of resins to Ag-Pd alloys by means of the silicoating technique. -

The purpose of the investigation was to study the effect of water storage on the bond strengths between silanized, silicoated Ag-Pd alloys and veneered composites, in comparison with the bond strengths of systems with conventional retention beads.

Development of carbon/graphite fiber reinforced poly (methyl methacrylate) suitable for implant-fixed dental bridges. -

Conventional bridge framework of gold alloys are expensive. After in vitro investigations, materials were selected for preparing bridges from carbon/graphite reinforced poly(methyl methacrylate) on titanium implants

Composites for use in posterior teeth: mechanical properties tested under dry and wet conditions -

The purpose of this investigation was to determine some mechanical properties of eight different posterior composites, and how they are affected by water sorption.

Implant-fixed, dental bridges from carbon/graphite fibre reinforced poly (methyl methacrylate) -

Conventional bridge frameworks of gold alloys are expensive. A method for preparing bridges from carbon/ graphite reinforced poly(methyl methacrylate) on titanium implants is described.

The influence of various admixes on the physical properties of a polycarboxylate cement. -

Aluminum oxide, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum fluoride-trihydrate, and titanium dioxide hydrate were added to a commercial polycarboxylate cement. The first substance increased the setting time and certain physical properties. The others decreased the same properties to varying degrees
