The aim of this study was to examine and compare vertical forces exerted during root canal obturation with the cold lateral condensation technique, Thermafil technique and ProTaper guttapercha. Fourty-five single-rooted permanent teeth were used in the study. All specimens were instrumented using the ProTaper rotating technique and were randomly divided(More)
Introduction Caries occurence has decreased in most developed countries (1-3) and the same trend is observed in Croatia (4). Information about restorative treatment thresholds, preparation techniques and restorative materials dentists use in their practice are necessary to determine whether dental treatment philosophies are altering in response to decline(More)
AIM To assess Croatian dentists' restorative treatment decisions on approximal caries lesions, including treatment threshold and restorative methods and materials. METHODS Croatian translation of the questionnaire assessing restorative treatment decisions on approximal caries, previously validated and used in Norway and Sweden, was distributed to a random(More)
This study aimed to identify differences in diagnostic criteria and restorative treatment among Croatian university teachers. The questionnaire was distributed to 120 Croatian university teachers in Zagreb and Rijeka. Responses were collected from 59 (49.2%) university teachers. Treatment thresholds for hypothetical approximal and occlusal caries, as well(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the distribution of Roekoseal Automix sealer using three different obturation techniques. Forty-five single-rooted extracted human teeth were prepared in a crown-down manner using ProFile instruments. After instrumentation the specimens were filled using Roekoseal Automix with the cold lateral condensation, Thermafil and(More)
Increased dietary fat intake generally, and saturated fat specifically, will lead to impairment of insulin action and to development of metabolic syndrome. The aim of this study was to find out changing of hepatic glucose output in dependence of high monounsaturated and high polyunsaturated fat diet and possible direct action of insulin in hepatocytes.(More)
The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate microleakage along glass-fibre posts cemented with three different cements after cyclic loading. After post-space preparation, fifty obturated root canals were randomly divided into three experimental groups and two control groups. In group 1, Glassix posts were cemented using Harvard cement, in group 2,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the cytotoxicity of two different bioactive root canal sealers: one based on mineral trioxide aggregate, MTA Fillapex (Angelus, Solucoes Odontologicas, Londrina, PR, Brazil), and the other based on bioceramics, Endosequence BC Sealer (Brasseler, Savannah, Georgia, USA), in culture of mouse L929 fibroblasts.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the microtensile bond strength of a composite resin to dentin modified with three different pulse durations of the Er:YAG laser based on variable square pulse technology and with one self-etch adhesive. MATERIALS AND METHODS The entire occlusal enamel was removed to obtain flat dentin surface for 48 human(More)
