Luting cements in a nutshell -

Choosing luting cements can be challenging given the constant development of resin cements and ceramic materials for indirect restorations. This review article gathers the most commonly used luting cements in current dental practice, focusing particularly on these cements’ composition and properties, which have an impact on their clinical indication. The article includes adhesive and non-adhesive […]

New webinar on toxicity out now -

In NIOM’s newset webinar you learn about toxicity in resin-based dental biomaterials from senior scientist Jan Tore Samuelsen.

In Vitro Effects of Dental Monomer Exposure – Dependence on the Cell Culture Model -

Methacrylate monomers are major components of resin-based biomaterials. The polymerization of these materials is never complete, and methacrylates leaking from cured materials cause exposure of patients. Only some selected methacrylates have thoroughly been tested for possible interaction with living cells. In the current study, we compared the effects of 2-hydroxyethyl-methacrylate (HEMA; a carefully studied methacrylate) […]

Ion release from three different dental alloys – effect of dynamic loading and toxicity of released elements -

The aims of this in vitro study were to assess if dynamic loading increases the metal ion release of selected dental alloys and to evaluate the cytotoxicity of the released metal ions

Clinical relevance of HEMA-toxicity studies -

Several studies show “leakage” of methacrylates during, and shortly after, treatment resin based dental materials. Read about the clinical relevance here.
