Selective Laser Melting Technique of Co-Cr Dental Alloys: A Review of Structure and Properties and Comparative Analysis with Other Available Techniques.
TLDR
The SLM technique provides dental prosthetic restorations more quickly and less expensively without compromising their quality compared with restoration prepared by casting and milling techniques, showing great potential to replace the aforementioned fabrication techniques in the long term.
Salivary metal levels of orthodontic patients: a novel methodological and analytical approach.
TLDR
The results of this study emphasize the necessity of incorporating the dimension of time in assessing the release potential of orthodontic alloys and the lack of a continuous monitoring scheme for salivary metal concentrations in real time may impose substantial obstacles to defining the release rate of metals in vivo.
A metallurgical characterization of ten endodontic Ni-Ti instruments: assessing the clinical relevance of shape memory and superelastic properties of Ni-Ti endodontic instruments.
TLDR
Microstructural and hardness data confirm that the Ni-Ti endodontic instruments tested were manufactured by cold worked Ni- Ti and do not posses shape memory or superelastic properties.
Light intensity effects on resin-composite degree of conversion and shrinkage strain.
Enamel surface roughness following debonding using two resin grinding methods.
TLDR
The increase in most roughness variables induced by the debonding procedures was not reversed at the end of the finishing stage, regardless of the resin removal protocol used, suggesting an irreversible effect on enamel texture.
Comparison of enamel colour changes associated with orthodontic bonding using two different adhesives.
TLDR
Evaluating the enamel colour changes associated with bonding of brackets with a no-mix (one-phase) adhesive resin (Unite) and a glass-ionomer adhesive (GC Fuji Ortho) found no difference was found with respect to delta E between etching-mediated and no etch-mediated bonding implying that the debonding cleaning process involving adhesive grinding may be more invasive relative to acid etching.
Micro-CT evaluation of the marginal fit of different In-Ceram alumina copings.
TLDR
The slip-cast technique and the Wol-Ceram system presented the best marginal fit, followed by Cerec inLab, which presented clinically acceptable results.
