+t Abstract This paper presents for the first time the design, implementation, measurements, reliability data and integration of multiple RF components such as filters, baluns, diplexers, and a combination of the above on Liquid Crystalline Polymer (LCP) based substrates for communication standards such as 802.11 a/b/g, LMDWMMDS, sa1,ellitddigital TV, UWB,(More)
Based upon the present study the following conclusions were reached: Supervised toothbrushing with instruction for preschool children significantly and consistently decreased dental plaque scores, when compared to the control group of the same children who had only supervision. While those subjects receiving toothbrushing instructions and supervision had(More)
The sample of this study consisted of 10 human permanent molars, which were sectioned into tooth quarters using slow speed diamond saw (Isomet), then a quarter from each tooth was assigned to one of four treatment groups: A) control (no treatment); B) argon laser only; C) argon laser plus neutral sodium fluoride for 4 minutes; D) argon laser with zinc(More)
Electrical resistance of the tooth was measured through the dental pulp by a relatively simple method. The primary resistance is in the enamel, and the total resistance drops severalfold as dental caries develop. This resistance has been measured on the occlusal surfaces of 122 teeth of children. The differences between explorer categories showed(More)
Previous clinical and in vitro studies have shown a higher failure rate of composite resins and conventional glass ionomer cements in primary teeth when compared to permanent teeth. A new generation of light-cured glass ionomer cements (compomers) were suggested to be used as restorative materials for the primary teeth. This study was conducted into two(More)
This study was designed to determine whether eye-dominance affects head posture (rotation) and in turn, whether head posture is associated with mandibular frenum midline deviation, in both TMJ and control subjects. Eye dominance was determined using three tests: Porta, Hole, Point tests. Natural head posture was evaluated using the Arthrodial protractor.(More)
Management of mild to moderate caries in primary anterior teeth is still a problem. Presently, class III composite restorations in primary teeth have inadequate retention. The purpose of this in vitro study was to analyze the influence of the design of modified class III cavity preparation on the retention of the restoration when compared to that of the(More)
A recent study conducted at Tufts University, School of Dental Medicine has confirmed the relationship between head posture, mandibular position and eye dominance. The purpose of this study is to assess the temporary eye dominance of children and the change relative to head posture and mandibular position. Twenty children were included in this study after(More)
