The Norwegian National Network Group for Oral Health Research and Innovation -

In 2014, the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services published a white paper on the status of oral health research in Norway. The white paper emphasised that there were too many small research groups in the country, they focused on too many diverse subjects, and there was too little national and international collaboration.

Internal fit of three-unit fixed dental prostheses produced by computeraided design/computer-aided manufacturing and the lost-wax metal casting technique assessed using the triple-scan protocol -

Suboptimal adaptation of fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) can lead to technical and biological complications. It is unclear if the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technique improves adaptation of FDPs compared with FDPs made using the lost-wax and metal casting technique.

Relation between In Vitro Toxicity and the Thiol-Reactivity of Methacrylates in Resin-Based Biomaterials -

In this study we aimed to further map the suggested relation between GSH-depletion and methacrylate toxicity by comparing the molecular effects of methacrylate exposure and GSH-depletion by inhibiting GSH-synthesis.

Proteome Changes Indicate Oxidative Stress and Protein Damage after Methacrylate Exposure in Human Monocyte Cell Line -

It has been suggested that reactive oxygen species are involved in HEMA toxicity. The upregulated levels of antioxidant enzymes and Hsp70 family proteins showed that HEMA exposure lead to cellular stress at concentrations that had no effect on cell viability.

TEGDMA and filler particles from dental composites additively attentuate LPS-induced cytokine release from the macrophage cell line RAW 264.7 -

Due to incomplete curing and material degradation, cells in the oral cavity may be exposed to monomers and filler particles from dental composite fillings. The objective of the present study was to investigate if combined exposures to particles and a methacrylate monomer from composite fillings resulted in additive effects on the macrophage immune response.
