Application of biomodification techniques to dentin can improve its biochemical and biomechanical properties. Several collagen cross-linking agents have been reported to strengthen the mechanical properties of dentin. However, the characteristics of collagen that has undergone agent-induced biomodification are not well understood. The objective of this(More)
OBJECTIVES A systematic review was performed to compare the long-term survival of deep dentine caries-affected permanent teeth treated with partial-caries-removal (PCR) versus similar teeth treated with stepwise-caries-removal techniques (SWT). DATA Clinical studies investigating long-term PCR and SWT outcomes in unrestored permanent teeth with deep(More)
OBJECTIVES To test the long-term in vitro bonding performance of "all-in-one" self-etch adhesives to dentine. METHODS Adper Prompt (3M ESPE), Bond Force (Tokuyama), Brush & Bond (Parkell), iBond Self Etch (Heraeus Kulzer), OptiBond All-In-One (Kerr), and Xeno IV (Dentsply Caulk) were tested. The two-step self-etch adhesive Clearfil SE Bond (Kuraray)(More)
