STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Microleakage around dental restorations is implicated in the occurrence of secondary carious lesions, adverse pulpal response, and reduced restoration longevity. PURPOSE The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the microleakage of indirect resin composite inlays cemented with 4 luting agents. MATERIAL AND METHODS Standardized(More)
Preservation of natural tooth structure requires early detection of the carious lesion and is associated with comprehensive patient dental care. Processes aiming to detect carious lesions in the initial stage with optimum efficiency employ a variety of technologies such as magnifying loupes, transillumination, light and laser fluorescence (QLF® and(More)
This study investigated the water sorption and solubility of two light-cured resin composites (Filtek P60 and Solitaire 2), one compomer (Compoglass F), one ormocer (Admira) and the associated bonding agents (Scotchbond 1 [Scotchbond 1 = Scotchbond Single Bond in USA], Gluma One Bond, Excite and Admira Bond, respectively) and of a RMGIC (Fuji II LC). Five(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the water-sorption characteristics and the solubility behavior of 4 luting cements-2 composite resins (CRs), a polyacid-modified composite resin (PMCR), and a resin-modified glass-ionomer cement (RMGIC)-according to the ISO 4049 specifications. METHOD AND MATERIALS Five disks (15 x 1 mm) of each material (Variolink II [CR1;(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate a new endodontic leakage measurement method. MATERIALS AND METHODS Permeability was assessed measuring the gas flow passing through the root. Positive and negative tests were carried out to assess the validity of the method. We used glass capillaries for calibration (diameters of 15, 30, 40, 50 and 75 microm). The(More)
OBJECTIVES Esthetic demands and biocompatibility have prompted the development of all-ceramic dental crowns. Yttria tetragonal zirconia polycrystalline (Y-TZP) framework material has the best mechanical properties compared to other all-ceramic systems, but the interface is the weakest component of core veneered restorations. Confocal Raman microscopy(More)
OBJECTIVES Our aim was to improve the comprehension of in vitro tracer leakage studies and to determine in which conditions such studies can be reliable. We aimed to develop different theoretical models to describe either an initially dry or a wet interface (slit) between sealer and dentin. METHODOLOGY Equations based on physical laws were derived to(More)
The goals of this trial were, first, to produce a Raman mapping of decay and sound dentin samples, through accurate analysis of the Raman band spectra variations of mineral and organic components. The second goal was to confirm the correlation between the Raman signal and the signal of a fluorescent camera, by assaying the concentration of pentosidine and(More)
