Radiation-related damage to dentition.
Because of typical tissue reactions to ionising radiation, radiotherapy in the head and neck region usually results in complex oral complications affecting the salivary glands, oral mucosa, bone,Expand
Comparative study of six rotary nickel-titanium systems and hand instrumentation for root canal preparation.
AIM To compare ex vivo various parameters of root canal preparation using a manual technique and six different rotary nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) instruments (FlexMaster, System GT, HERO 642, K3,Expand
Resin Infiltration of Natural Caries Lesions
Infiltration of non-cavitated caries lesions with light-curing resins could lead to an arrest of lesion progression. The aim of this study was to evaluate the penetration of a conventional adhesiveExpand
Enamel and dentine remineralization by nano-hydroxyapatite toothpastes.
OBJECTIVES This in vitro study evaluated the effects of nano-hydroxyapatite (n-HAp) toothpastes on remineralization of bovine enamel and dentine subsurface lesions. METHODS Specimens wereExpand
Morphological and bond strength evaluation of different resin cements to root dentin.
This study correlated the morphological characteristics with the bond strengths of various resin cements used for bonding fiber posts to root canal dentin. Fifty glass-fiber posts (FRC Postec Plus)Expand
Penetration coefficients of commercially available and experimental composites intended to infiltrate enamel carious lesions.
OBJECTIVES Arresting of enamel lesions by infiltration with light curing composite resins might be a treatment alternative of future micro-invasive dentistry. So far only commercially availableExpand
Effect of fluoride treatment on remineralization of bleached enamel.
The objective of the study was to evaluate the remineralizing capacity of different fluoride treatments on dental enamel bleached with carbamide peroxide (Opalescence). Sixty bovine enamel slabs wereExpand
Surface Layer Erosion of Natural Caries Lesions with Phosphoric and Hydrochloric Acid Gels in Preparation for Resin Infiltration
The infiltration of proximal enamel lesions with low-viscosity light curing resins could be a viable approach to stop lesion progression. However, penetration of sealant might be hampered by theExpand
Resin infiltration of artificial enamel caries lesions with experimental light curing resins.
To prevent enamel lesions from further demineralization, a complete and homogeneous penetration of low-viscosity resins ('infiltrants') should be accomplished. With commercially available adhesives,Expand
Clinical evaluation of the measuring accuracy of ROOT ZX in primary teeth.
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of an electronic device (Root ZX; Morita, Tokyo, Japan) for measuring the root canal length in primary teeth. STUDY DESIGN The pulp tissueExpand
