OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the fracture strength and failure mode of flared bovine roots restored with different intraradicular posts. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty bovine incisors with similar dimensions were selected and their roots were flared until 1.0 mm of dentin wall remained. Next, the roots were allocated into five groups(More)
Otoacoustic emissions (OAE) are sound products generated by the outer hair cells (OHC) in the inner ear. The OHC are capable of moving spontaneously or in response to acoustic stimuli (spontaneous otoacoustic emissions and evoked otoacoustic emissions), these movements are known as electromotility. Electromotility is affected when contralateral acoustic(More)
The present study shows the factors that modulate the photodamage promoted by phenothiazines. Cytochrome c was irradiated with UV light for 120 min, over a pH range from 4.0 to 8.0, in the absence and in the presence of different concentrations of thioridazine (TR) and fluphenazine (FP). In the absence of phenothiazines, the maximal rate of a Soret band(More)
OBJECTIVE This in vitro study evaluated the influence of luting agents on ultrasonic vibration time for intraradicular cast post removal. MATERIAL AND METHODS After endodontic treatment, 30 roots of extracted human canines were embedded in resin cylinders. The post-holes were prepared at 10 mm depth and their impressions were taken using autopolymerizing(More)
