The term "nanoleakage" has been introduced to explain a penetration pathway within hybrid layers of the dentin-composite junction in the absence of gap formation. This phenomenon is argued in the literature to be a risk factor for the quality of the dentin bonding. NaOCl is a well-known agent used to remove collagen layers that are exposed after acid(More)
Resin infiltration of non-cavitated proximal caries lesions has been shown to inhibit further demineralization. However, the effect of resin infiltration in cavitated lesions is unknown. Therefore, the aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate infiltration patterns of proximal caries lesions differing in International Caries Detection and Assessment System(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Chronic infectious diseases may increase the risk of stroke. We investigated whether periodontal disease, including periodontitis and gingivitis, is a risk factor for cerebral ischemia. METHODS We performed a case-control study with 303 patients examined within 7 days after acute ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack, 300(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the associations of different periodontal parameters with cerebral ischemia. METHODS In a case-control study, 303 consecutive patients with ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack, and 300 representative population controls received a complete clinical and radiographic dental examination. Patients were(More)
Dental caries is the most prevalent disease worldwide, with the majority of caries lesions being concentrated in few, often disadvantaged social groups. We aimed to systematically assess current evidence for the association between socioeconomic position (SEP) and caries. We included studies investigating the association between social position (determined(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this 5-year randomized controlled clinical trial was to evaluate the long-term results after guided tissue regeneration (GTR) therapy of infrabony defects using two bioabsorbable barriers. METHODS Fifteen pairs of contralateral infrabony defects in 15 patients with moderate to severe periodontitis were treated. Each patient received(More)
OBJECTIVE Plaque accumulation on implant surfaces can result in peri-implantitis with potential implant loss. The aim of the present study was to examine the influence of zirconium nitride (ZrN) as a potential implant surface on the biofilm composition and diversity in vivo. MATERIAL AND METHODS ZrN- or titanium (Ti)-coated glass specimens and ZrN or(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the ability of one commercial and five experimental infiltrating resins (infiltrants) to camouflage enamel white spot lesions immediately after resin infiltration and after a staining period. METHODS In each of 120 bovine enamel samples, two artificial caries lesions were created (windows A and C;(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to determine the survival rates of questionable and hopeless teeth in patients with aggressive periodontitis (AgP) and chronic periodontitis (CP) during 15 years of supportive periodontal therapy (SPT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four AgP and 34 CP patients (SPT≥10 years) with bone loss of ≥50% at ≥2 teeth were(More)
Increasing numbers of clinical trials have demonstrated the benefits of incomplete caries removal, in particular in the treatment of deep caries. This study systematically reviewed randomized controlled trials investigating one- or two-step incomplete compared with complete caries removal. Studies treating primary and permanent teeth with primary caries(More)
