OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to evaluate the effects of cryopreservation of teeth on dentin bond strength as a function of remaining dentin thickness. METHODS Flat occlusal surfaces of human dentin were prepared in 54 freshly extracted teeth and 54 thawed, cryopreserved teeth. In each group, 18 bonds were performed in superficial dentin, 18 in(More)
After reviewing 30 cases of patients having had a total hip arthroplasty by the Charnley's technique between 1970 and 1978, the authors study the radiographic parameters of the cup and of the femoral stem, using geometric buildings described by Sutherland. On the acetabulum, the inclinaition angle, the medialisation and the wear of the cup were calculated.(More)
Plane dentin surfaces were abraded perpendicular to the radicular axis of sound human molars. They were cleaned to reveal the tubules, and the morphological features of each surface were studied microscopically. For a first series of teeth, the Vickers microhardness of the dentin surfaces was measured and the calcium and phosphorus composition was(More)
The aim of this study was to quantify the changes in the watertightness of three temporary filling materials over 1 wk with a new electrochemical technique: the impedance a measurement technique. Forty sound extracted human maxillary teeth were selected and prepared for the measurements. They were divided into three groups in addition to positive and(More)
Plane human enamel and dentin surfaces were used for microstructural investigation and shear bond testing. The dental tissue microstructure was characterized through the surface topology, the concentration in mineral elements (determined by electron microprobe analysis), and the Vickers microhardness for the same dental tissue. The etched prismatic enamel(More)
The aim of this study was to quantify the sealing ability of four temporary filling materials over 9 days using a new electrochemical technique. Fifty-two extracted human maxillary bicuspids were selected and prepared for the measurements. They were divided into four groups of 12 teeth each, in addition to two positive and two negative controls. After(More)
A biodegradable triblock poly(ε-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(ε-caprolactone) copolymer was successfully synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone, and was characterized by intrinsic viscosimetry, (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. Copolymer microparticles loaded with ibuprofen were(More)
