Microbiological evaluation of photo-activated disinfection in endodontics (An in vivo study)
TLDR
The PAD system offers a means of destroying bacteria remaining after using conventional irrigants in endodontic therapy, and it is found that three of the four canals which had remained infected cultured negative after the PAD process.
The in vivo perception of roughness of restorations
TLDR
It is concluded that when finishing restorations the surface should have a maximum roughness 0.50 μm if it is not to be detected by the patient.
Water sorption characteristics of resin-modified glass-ionomer cements.
TLDR
Great weight increase and greater volumetric expansion were observed on long-term storage in artificial saliva than in distilled water, indicating rapid water loss from the desiccated cements.
Variation in powder/liquid ratio of a restorative glass-ionomer cement used in dental practice
TLDR
This study investigates the powder/liquid ratios of a glass-ionomer restorative mixed in clinical practice and concludes that this restorative was often mixed in practice at much lower powder/ liquid ratios than that recommended by the manufacturer and that this would impair the cement's mechanical properties.
Antibacterial action of photoactivated disinfection {PAD} used on endodontic bacteria in planktonic suspension and in artificial and human root canals.
TLDR
PAD killed endodontic bacteria at statistically significant levels compared to controls, and kills varied with bacterial species.
Ion processes in glass ionomer cements.
TLDR
Ion processes are involved in many aspects of glass-ionomer cements and analysis of the ions released from the cement as disruption occurs should provide an indication of the site of attack.
The effect of the disc support system on biaxial tensile strength of a glass ionomer cement.
TLDR
Comparison with the mean result obtained from using a continuous knife-edge support showed there to be no significant difference (unpaired t-test) between the different support systems except in two cases, both being when a four-point support was used.
An alternative regimen for root canal disinfection
TLDR
Use of a chelating agent acting as a cleaner and disrupter of the biofilm and photo-activated disinfection to kill bacteria is an effective alternative to the use of hypochlorite as a root canal cleaning system.
Influence of humidity on dimensional stability of a range of ion-leachable cements.
TLDR
The dimensional changes of a variety of dental restorative materials, occurring during and after setting, were investigated and shrunkage of conventional glass-ionomer cements and two materials setting by an acid-base reaction were examined.
Kinetics of fluoride ion release from dental restorative glass ionomer cements: the influence of ultrasound, radiant heat and glass composition
TLDR
The lesser effect on cement with fluoride only in the water indicates that of ultrasound enhances fluoride release from glass, and the effect of replacing some of the reactive glass with zirconia addition enhances fluorine release although the cement fluorine content is reduced.
