Chitosan incorporated in denture base resin reduce biofilm formation of Streptococcus mutans and Candida albicans -

The aim of this study was to investigate the biofilm inhibitory effect of methacrylated chitosan covalently incorporated into the PMMA network of denture base resin against Streptococcus mutans and Candida albicans.

Surface modification of fiber reinforced polymer composites and their attachment to bone simulating material -

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of fiber orientation of a fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) made of poly-methyl-methacrylate (PMMA) and E-glass to the surface fabrication process by solvent dissolution. Intention of the dissolution process was to expose the fibers and create a macroporous surface onto the FRC to enhance bone bonding of the material

Surface structure of fiber-reinforced composite implant and its effect on the attachment of implant to simulating bone material -

Fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and E-glass fibers has been developed for bone segment defect reconstructions. It has been shown that exposed glass fibers predispose intergration of implant to bone. The aim of this study was to investigate how fibers of the implant surface can be exposed by solvent treatment and how the exposed fibers with different orientations effect the attachment of the implant to a bone simulating material

Effect of thermal cycling on flexural properties of carbon-graphite fiber-reinforced polymers -

Aim of study: Determine flexural strength and modulus after water storage and thermal cycling of carbon–graphite fiber-reinforced (CGFR) polymers based on poly(methyl methacrylate) and a copolymer matrix, and to examine adhesion between fiber and matrix by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
