Radiation-related damage to dentition.
Because of typical tissue reactions to ionising radiation, radiotherapy in the head and neck region usually results in complex oral complications affecting the salivary glands, oral mucosa, bone,Expand
Performance of a new laser fluorescence device for the detection of occlusal caries in vitro.
UNLABELLED The new device DIAGNOdent pen based on red laser light induced fluorescence was introduced for the detection of approximal and occlusal caries. The aim of this study was to test itsExpand
Effect of two antimicrobial agents on early in situ biofilm formation.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this observer-blind, controlled, three-cell cross-over study was to evaluate the influence of an amine fluoride/stannous fluoride (Meridol, 250 ppm; ASF) and a chlorhexidineExpand
The in vivo dynamics of Streptococcus spp., Actinomyces naeslundii, Fusobacterium nucleatum and Veillonella spp. in dental plaque biofilm as analysed by five-colour multiplex fluorescence in situ
The formation and composition of dental plaque biofilm in vivo are important factors which influence the development of gingivitis, caries and periodontitis. Studying dental plaque biofilm in inExpand
Efficacy of different rotary instruments for gutta-percha removal in root canal retreatment.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of FlexMaster, ProTaper, and RaCe rotary instruments compared with Hedström files for removal of gutta-percha during retreatment. SixtyExpand
Elution of monomers from two conventional dental composite materials.
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the elution of monomers of two conventional resin composite materials after different polymerization and storage times. METHODS Two resin compositesExpand
Visualization of adherent micro-organisms using different techniques.
The visualization and quantification of adherent bacteria is still one of the most relevant topics in microbiology. Besides electron microscopic techniques such as transmission electron microscopy,Expand
Impact of the intraoral location on the rate of biofilm growth
The aims of the present study were: a) to assess the impact of the intraoral location on the rate of biofilm growth, and b) to establish an in vivo biofilm model to examine intraoral biofilm growth.Expand
Fluoride taken up by plaque, by the underlying enamel and by clean enamel from three fluoride compounds in vitro.
The interaction of fluoride with plaque and the underlying enamel was studied in an artificial mouth after topical application of three different fluoride solutions. Streptococcus mutans</
Effect of fluoride treatment on remineralization of bleached enamel.
The objective of the study was to evaluate the remineralizing capacity of different fluoride treatments on dental enamel bleached with carbamide peroxide (Opalescence). Sixty bovine enamel slabs wereExpand
