A preliminary scanning electron microscopic study of root canals after endodontic procedures.
Endodontically treated root canals were examined by scanning electron microscopy. Three separate in vitro studies were conducted to demonstrate the effects of different instrumentation techniques,Expand

Development of a pericardial acellular matrix biomaterial: biochemical and mechanical effects of cell extraction.
There is evidence to suggest that the cellular components of homografts and bioprosthetic xenografts may contribute to calcification or immunogenic reactions. A four-step detergent and enzymaticExpand

Caries-detector dyes--how accurate and useful are they?
Commercially available caries-detector dyes are purported to aid the dentist in differentiation of infected dentin, yet research has established that these dyes are not specific for infected dentin.Expand

Comparison of physical properties of polycarboxylate-based and conventional root canal sealers.
Abstract Several physical properties of nine commercial root canal sealers were evaluated in vitro and were compared with those of two experimental endodontic materials based on polycarboxylateExpand

A clinical comparison of glass ionomer, resin-modified glass ionomer and resin composite restorations in the treatment of cervical caries in xerostomic head and neck radiation patients.
Controversy exists as to whether there is less secondary caries at the margins of glass ionomer restorations compared with other materials that do not release fluoride. This study examined theExpand

A clinical comparison of glass ionomer (polyalkenoate) and silver amalgam restorations in the treatment of Class 5 caries in xerostomic head and neck cancer patients.
Fifty-four pairs of restorations (one glass ionomer and the other amalgam) were placed in the mouths of 36 xerostomic head and neck cancer patients. Patients were either fluoride users or fluorideExpand
