Objectives To evaluate transesterification based dissolution of dimethacrylate and epoxy polymers, the former containing ester groups. Polymer substrates were treated with an adhesive resin (Stick™ Resin) and an organic catalyst-alcohol solution (...
Aim of the study: The aim of this laboratory study was to evaluate the effect of ethanol treatment on the surface roughness (Sa), nano-mechanical properties (NMP) and surface characterization of dental fiber reinforced composite (FRC) with semi-...
This paper proposes a tiny ultralow-power and low-cost tooth sensor with hybridized data processing algorithm for monitoring implant tooth implant prosthesis performance. In general micro displacement or any fatal damages in prosthesis tooth implant...
Background: The treatment selection for the oral squamous cell carcinoma remains controversial. Radiation therapy or surgical excision of the lesion can be applied as the sole treatment or it can be used in combination with other treatment...
Many people are affected by dental problems that have serious long-term effects. Thus, oral hygiene maintenance is necessary to prevent dry mouth tooth decay, bad breath, and cold sores, which adversely affect oral health. In this paper, we...
The aim of this study was to investigate the load-deflection of commercially available standard NiTi wires and Cu–NiTi alignment archwires. The load deflection of 0.014'' Cu–NiTi from American Orthodontics and 0.014'' NiTi wires from five...
Background: Cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for lung cancer, asthma, and oral cancer, and is central to the altered innate immune responsiveness to infection. Many hypotheses have provided evidence that cigarette smoking induces more...
It has been reported that complication due to Fusobacterium necrophorum may lead to disseminated intravascular coagulation associated with septicaemia, capable of platelet aggregation and coagulation factor activation. Here, we present a case report...
Aim To investigate the efficacy of photo activated disinfection (PAD) in reducing colony-forming unit (CFU) counts of Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) in infected dental root canals. The study compared the efficacy of PAD with conventional...
Aim To determine the adhesion strength (measured as shear bond strength, SBS) of orthodontic brackets using two experimental silane-based primer systems and compare and contrast their effect. Materials and methods Sixty acid-etched premolars were...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of solvent/disinfectant ethanol on the surface of denture base polymers. Changes in surface roughness, topography and some nanomechanical properties were assessed by SEM and nanoindentation plotted...
This laboratory study was assessing the nano-mechanical properties (NMP), surface roughness (Sa), and topographic changes caused by ethanol on the surface of heat-polymerized denture base polymers at different time past dough stage. Specimens of...
Oral cancer is considered the eighth common cause of cancer-related deaths, of which 90% are squamous cell carcinomas of oral mucosa. The varied microflora of the oral mucosa, tongue, and pharynx accompany the oral carcinomas. Only limited studies...
The human oral cavity presents as an exceptional microbiological environment from other surfaces of the body. This environment allows for the extended colonization and development of microbial communities. It is essential to gain a complete...
Tooth enamel is the most mineralized tissue in the human body, and in this article the use of Raman spectroscopy for the analysis of tooth structure, a comparison with synthetic apatites, and use in dentistry are described. Spectral peaks that are...
