Webinar: Fluor and fluorider -

Join our webinar on the 12th of February. We’ll talk about fluor and fluorider, and how to meet fluor sceptics

Erosive properties of sour sweets and drinks -

Dental erosion has a multifactorial etiology with contributions from chemical, biological and behavioral factors. In terms of chemical factors, type of foods and drinks is important. The chemical factors that determine whether foods and drinks are erosive are low pH, type of acid, meaning a low acid dissociation constant (pKa), high buffer capacity and low […]

Effect of methacrylated chitosan incorporated in experimental composite and adhesive on mechanical properties and biofilm formation -

The results of this study show that CH-MA (CH-MA) may be incorporated into a composite and into an adhesive to reduce biofilm formation on their surfaces. The mechanical properties of the composite were challenged, but flexural strength measurements still met the requirement set in ISO 4049, whereas no differences were observed for the bonding properties of the adhesives.
