The antimicrobial effects of two glass-ionomer cements (GICs), GC Fuji II and Fuji II LC, mixed with different amounts (0 wt%, 10 wt% and 30 wt% of the total powder weight) of bioactive glass (BAG), S53P4, on Streptococcus mutans and Candida albicans were studied in vitro. The growth inhibition was tested using agar diffusion. The materials were also(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine compressive strength, Young's modulus of elasticity, and Vickers' surface hardness, of conventional cure and resin-modified glass ionomer cements after the addition of bioactive glass (BAG) particles into the cements. METHODS Experimental glass ionomer cement (GIC)-BAG materials were made by mixing 10- or(More)
In this study, modifications of glass ionomer cements (GICs) were made by adding bioactive glass (BAG) to GIC to obtain bioactive restorative materials. This study used SEM, EDS and visual analysis to examine the bioactivity and the ability of the study materials to mineralize dentin. Conventional cure and resin-modified light-curing GIC were used. The(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the release of silica (Si), calcium (Ca), phosphorous (P), and fluoride (F) from conventional glass ionomer cement (GI) and resin-modified glass ionomer cement (LCGI), containing different quantities of bioactive glass (BAG). Further aim was to evaluate in vitro biomineralization of dentine. The release of Si increased(More)
