Enhanced Bone Apposition to a Chemically Modified SLA Titanium Surface
Increased surface roughness of dental implants has demonstrated greater bone apposition; however, the effect of modifying surface chemistry remains unknown. In the present study, we evaluated boneExpand
The Role of Diet in the Aetiology of Dental Erosion
Acids of intrinsic and extrinsic origin are thought to be the main etiologic factors for dental erosion. There is evidence that acidic foodstuffs and beverages play a role in the development ofExpand
Clinical performance of a laser fluorescence device for detection of occlusal caries lesions.
Children and adolescents must be examined often for occlusal caries. Diagnosis of fissure caries is difficult especially when the tooth surface appears seemingly intact. It has been shown that usingExpand
Basic Erosive Wear Examination (BEWE): a new scoring system for scientific and clinical needs
A new scoring system, the Basic Erosive Wear Examination (BEWE), has been designed to provide a simple tool for use in general practice and to allow comparison to other more discriminative indices.Expand
Dental Erosion – An Overview with Emphasis on Chemical and Histopathological Aspects
The quality of dental care and modern achievements in dental science depend strongly on understanding the properties of teeth and the basic principles and mechanisms involved in their interactionExpand
Performance and Reproducibility of a Laser Fluorescence System for Detection of Occlusal Caries in vitro
The diagnosis of occlusal caries at non–cavitated sites remains problematic, especially since clinical visual detection has limited sensitivity. Electrical methods of detection show considerableExpand
Performance of Fluorescence Methods, Radiographic Examination and ICDAS II on Occlusal Surfaces in vitro
This study compared the performance of fluorescence-based methods, radiographic examination, and International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS) II on occlusal surfaces. One hundred andExpand
Performance of a new laser fluorescence device for the detection of occlusal caries in vitro.
UNLABELLED The new device DIAGNOdent pen based on red laser light induced fluorescence was introduced for the detection of approximal and occlusal caries. The aim of this study was to test itsExpand
Erosion—diagnosis and risk factors
Dental erosion is a multifactorial condition: The interplay of chemical, biological and behavioural factors is crucial and helps explain why some individuals exhibit more erosion than others. TheExpand
