PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine whether 1- or 2-visit indirect pulp therapy (IPT) is more successful and to determine if the operator can successfully decide when to stop removing caries without exposing the pulp. METHODS A total of 154 teeth (94 primary second molars and 60 young permanent first molars) were included in the study from a(More)
The aim of this study was to compare one-visit indirect pulp treatment (IPT), two-visit IPT, and direct complete excavation (DCE) of deciduous and young permanent molars with deep carious lesions from clinical and microbiological points of view. One hundred thirty-five teeth (83 deciduous molars and 52 young permanent molars) were included in the study. The(More)
OBJECTIVES First to compare different dentin bonding agents' shear bond strength to primary and permanent dentin. Secondly to compare the fracture failure modes and making an attempt to develop a statistical model that could be helpful in predicting them. METHODS Extracted human primary and permanent molars were used as substrates (dentin). The shear bond(More)
BACKGROUND Sensitivity complaints are commonly observed in teeth affected by MIH (molar incisor hypomineralization). AIM This study aimed to evaluate the hypersensitivity observed in MIH-affected teeth and the effect of desensitizing agents applied with and without ozone to incisors affected by MIH. STUDY DESIGN The first part of the study included 120(More)
OBJECTIVE There are a few studies that describe the oral findings in newborn children in various populations but none conducted for a Turkish population. Hence, this study determined the prevalence of intraoral findings in a group of newborns and examined the correlation among these findings with the mother's systemic and gestational medical complications,(More)
We investigated inhibition of lesion progression in artificial enamel lesions. Lesions were created on primary and permanent anterior teeth (n = 10 each) and were divided randomly into two groups with two windows: Group 1 (window A: resin infiltration; window B: negative control) and Group 2 (window A: resin infiltration + fluoride varnish; window B:(More)
