STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Little information exists regarding the outcome of crown build-ups on endodontically treated teeth restored with metal-ceramic crowns or with only a direct-placed composite. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical success rate of endodontically treated premolars restored with fiber posts and direct composite(More)
OBJECTIVES Aim of the study was to measure the adhesion between two types of translucent prefabricated FRC posts (FRC Postec, Ivoclar-Vivadent, FRC; Light-Post, RTD, LP), and two types of flowable composites used as core materials (UnifilFlow, GC, UF; Tetric Flow, Ivoclar-Vivadent, TF), with or without the application of a silane (Monobond-S,(More)
The animal proteins in a low-lipid, low-cholesterol diet were substituted with a textured soybean preparation for 127 outpatients with stable type II hyperlipoproteinaemia selected from eight Italian and one Swiss lipid clinics. Eight weeks of the modified diet reduced plasma cholesterol by 23.1% in the 67 participating male patients and by 25.3% in the 60(More)
OBJECTIVES Resin composites can be proposed for the restoration of incisal edges. If a progressive wear or an old fracture is responsible for the loss of the incisal edge, the bonding substrate is likely to be sclerotic dentin, surrounded by enamel. The purpose of the study was to measure under laboratory conditions, the shear bond strength of three(More)
In an ongoing search for improved aesthetics, new materials and techniques are being developed and evaluated for clinical application; all-ceramic crown systems are among them. This paper presents an in vitro evaluation of the effect of dentin and porcelain bonding, with luting resin, on microleakage of porcelain crowns. Clinical application is discussed,(More)
The apical seal of roots obturated with a dentin bonding agent and Thermafill with and without the use of sodium hypochlorite as an irrigating solution was compared by a dye leakage test. Roots obturated with Thermafill and a zinc oxide eugenol sealer were used as controls. Thirty-eight roots were prepared chemomechanically and divided into three(More)
