AIM This in vitro study was designed to investigate the effects of daily fluoride exposures on fluoride release and recharge by prereacted glass ionomer (PRG) composite and nano-ionomeric glass ionomer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-two specimens (36 of each material) were prepared and by placing the restorative materials into Teflon mold. Each specimen(More)
BACKGROUND Restoration of carious primary molars is still a major concern while treating the young children that too in deep carious lesion which extends below the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ) where pulp protection and achieving adequate marginal seal are very important to prevent secondary caries. The needs were met with the development of new materials.(More)
Traditional transit is often unable to effectively service areas of low ridership and low population density. To alleviate this problem, a method of combining traditional transit with demand-responsive transportation is proposed. This system, known as the network-inspired transportation system (NITS), uses demand-responsive transportation to handle the(More)
This paper defines an integrated transportation framework known as the network inspired transportation system (NITS). The NITS uses demand-responsive transit that leverages static bus and rail services, to optimally route passengers though a complex transportation network in the same manner that a data packet is routed through a telecommunications network.(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Childhood overweight and obesity are becoming a major public health concern all over the world. Change in lifestyles and economic growth have led to sedentary lifestyle and altered dietary patterns. There are conflicting reports in the literature regarding the association between body mass index (BMI) and dental caries from various parts(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to evaluate and compare the apical extrusion of irrigant and depth of irrigant penetration into the dentinal tubules using the EndoVac irrigating system and the manual irrigation system in primary molar teeth. STUDY DESIGN Twenty five extracted primary molars satisfying the inclusion and exclusion criteria were(More)
This paper describes the development of a software architecture for visually-guided workspace control on a 7 degree-of-freedom manipulator. Beginning with hardware and low-level drivers for the arm, a force sensor, a camera, and a 6-axis mouse, we produced a system capable of tracking and capturing small autonomous mobile robots [3]. The project(More)
BACKGROUND β-thalassaemia major is a hereditary hemolytic anemia and the patients often experience growth retardation, protrusive maxilla, and depressed nasal bride leading to various degrees of malocclusion. AIM The purpose of this investigation is to find the prevalence of dentofacial abnormalities in β-thalassaemia major patients. SUBJECTS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Delivery of effective dental treatment to a child patient requires thorough knowledge to recognize dental fear and its management by the application of behavioral management techniques. Children's Fear Survey Schedule - Dental Subscale (CFSS-DS) helps in identification of specific stimuli which provoke fear in children with regard to dental(More)
BACKGROUND Today, most approaches to caries viewed that catastrophic change in normal plaque biofilm is responsible for the disease. The behavior and composition of the biofilm are a reflection of the oral environment; the caries is a reflection of adverse changes occurring in that environment. Thus, it is important to identify the pathogenicity of the(More)
