The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of two desensitizing agents in the reduction of dentin hypersensitivity in a randomized, double-blind, split-mouth clinical trial. Seventy-seven teeth from 13 patients that presented some degree of sensitivity to probing and/or air stimulation were treated with one of the following desensitizing agents:(More)
PURPOSE To assess (i) the outcome of changing the horizontal-offset dimension on the peri-implant soft tissues and the crestal bone and (ii) the effect of different healing abutments (flared vs. straight) on the marginal peri-implant soft tissues and crestal bone. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two-piece dental implants diameters of 3.5 and 4.5 mm were placed at(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of ceramic surface treatments and silane drying temperature on the microtensile bond strength (µTBS) of a resin composite to a lithium disilicate ceramic. Twenty blocks (7x7x5 mm) of lithium disilicate-based hot-pressed ceramic were fabricated and randomly divided into 4 groups: G1: acid etching with 9.5%(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of oxalic acid (BisBlock) on restorations of non-carious cervical lesions. One operator placed 90 restorations randomly divided into two groups in 20 patients under cotton rolls isolation: Control Group—two-step etch-and-rinse adhesive technique; and Experimental Group—two-step etch-and-rinse adhesive(More)
The use of ultrasound for pregnancy monitoring is critical for the evaluation of hemodynamic parameters essential to fetal viability. In the present study, using B-mode and Doppler ultrasound, we characterized the placenta, subplacenta, maternal, and fetal vessels during normal gestation of healthy agoutis raised in captivity. In total, 30 agoutis were(More)
