STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Discoloration of resin-based composites by colored solutions is a common problem. The use of bleaching agents for discolored natural teeth is becoming increasingly popular. It is not clear if bleaching agents can remove the stain from composite resins. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of 2 staining(More)
As a novel risk gene for Alzheimer's disease (AD), triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2 (TREM2) gene encodes a type I transmembrane receptor that is uniquely expressed by the microglia in the brain. Emerging evidence indicates a strong association between TREM2 and tau pathology in the cerebral spinal fluid or brain tissue of AD patients. In(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of different finishing and polishing procedures on surface roughness, gloss and color of five resin composites: two experimental microhybrid composites - FZ-Dentin (FZD) and FZ-Enamel (FZE), one commercial microhybrid composite - Esthet-X (EX), and two microfilled composites - Heliomolar (HM) and Renamel Microfill (RM).

BACKGROUND High risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the major cause of cervical cancer. Several epidemiological studies have performed HPV screening in Chinese women, but no report was for Shanghai suburb women. OBJECTIVES To understand the prevalence of HPV infection and risk factors in Shanghai suburbs. STUDY DESIGN Between March 2011 and May(More)
Previously, we showed that overexpression of triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2 (TREM2), a microglia-specific immune receptor, in the brain of a middle-aged (7 months old) APPswe/PS1dE9 mice could ameliorate Alzheimer’s disease (AD)-related neuropathology by enhancement of microglial amyloid-β (Aβ) phagocytosis. Since AD is an age-related(More)
This study compared the mechanical properties, generalized wear resistance and polymerization shrinkage of a resin composite filled with spherical inorganic filler to other commercial resin composites. Six dental resin composites were tested, including a submicron filled composite (Estelite sigma, Estelite), 1 nano-composite (Filtek Supreme, Supreme), 2(More)
OBJECTIVES Opalescence and fluorescence properties and the correlated translucency and masking effect of resin composites may change after aging. The objective of this study was to determine the changes in opalescence and fluorescence properties of resin composites after accelerated aging for 150 kJ/m2. Changes in translucency and masking effect were also(More)
PURPOSE To study the color stability of different resin cements after accelerated aging. METHODS The color stability of a self-adhesive resin cement (Unicem), one resin-based composite cement (Variolink II), one compomer cement (Principle) and one hybrid ionomer cement (FujiCEM) was studied. Two curing modes of Unicem (self-cured and dual-cured) and(More)
OBJECTIVES Opalescence is an optical property, where there is light scattering of the shorter wavelengths of the visible spectrum, giving the material a bluish appearance under reflected light and an orange/brown appearance under transmitted light. The objective of this study was to determine the opalescence of resin composites with a color measuring(More)
OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to investigate trends in oral health in a cohort from late childhood through adolescence to early adulthood and to describe how the oral health of young adults was affected by their family sociodemographic characteristics, oral health status, and utilization of dental services during adolescence using life course(More)
