When opposing teeth with amalgam and gold restoration are in contact, current flows in the mouth at the instant the dissimilar metals touch. In this study, this condition was simulated by use of resistors and extracted human teeth with amalgam and MOD gold inlay restorations. When both teeth were in contact in a physiological saline solution, we measured(More)
We report the near through mid-infrared (MIR) optical absorption spectra, over the range 0.05–1.3 eV, of monocrystalline silicon layers hyperdoped with chalcogen atoms synthesized by ion implantation followed by pulsed laser melting. A broad mid-infrared optical absorption band emerges, peaking near 0.5 eV for sulfur and selenium and 0.3 eV for tellurium(More)
A small experimental impression tray was fabricated with a NiTi shape memory alloy plate. After recovery of the shape memory effect, the upper rims of the tray holding the impression were opened to some extent, the resistance during removal of the model from the impression was significantly decreased compared to a commercially available tray and the tray(More)
