PURPOSE This study examined the wear resistance of human enamel and feldspathic porcelain after simulated mastication against 3 zirconia ceramics, heat-pressed ceramic and conventional feldspathic porcelain. MATERIALS AND METHODS Human teeth and feldspathic porcelain cusp were tested against ceramic discs. 5 brands were tested - 3 monolithic zirconia,(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between gingival translucency and peri-implant mucosa. A total of 22 peri-implant sites in 16 patients who required tooth replacement in the esthetic zone were included. Color measurements were obtained using a spectrophotometer and customized colored abutments. Mucosal thickness measurements were taken(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the osteogenic effects of demineralized dentin matrix (DDM) combined with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in rabbit calvarial defects with DDM and anorganic bovine bone (ABB) combined with rhBMP-2. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four round defects with 8-mm diameters were created in each(More)
Understanding of the interaction between human MG63 osteoblast-like cells and surfaces is necessary in the field of tissue engineering and biomaterials. Various titanium surfaces are widely used as not only implant materials, but also as miniscrews in orthodontics. Our goal was to assess the proteomic response of MG63 osteoblast-like cells to different(More)
