The aim of this study was to evaluate the fracture frequency and longevity of fractured class IV resin composite (RC), polyacid-modified resin composite (compomer; PMRC), and resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RMGIC) restorations in a longitudinal long-term follow-up. Eighty-five class IV RC (43: Pekafil), PMRC (24: Dyract (D), Hytac (H)), and RMGIC (18:(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to present an 11-year assessment of direct resin composite inlays/onlays. METHODS One-hundred Class II direct resin composite inlays and 34 direct resin composite restorations were placed in 40 patients. The restorations were evaluated clinically, according to modified USPHS criteria, annually over a 11-year period. (More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate in an intraindividual comparison the durability of a polyacid-modified resin composite/resin composite open sandwich restoration in a 9 years follow-up. A polyacid-modified resin composite (PMRC; compomer, Dyract) was placed as an intermediate layer and covered with resin composite (RC, Prisma TPH). A direct(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term clinical retention to dentin of a two-step self-etching adhesive system Clearfil SE Bond and a two-step etch-and-rinse system PQ1. METHODS A total of 119 Class V restorations were placed in non-carious cervical lesions without intentional involvement of the enamel incisal of the lesions. The(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this clinical study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of 3-unit anterior fixed partial dentures (FPDs) made of fiber-reinforced resin composite (FRC), and to identify design factors influencing the survival rate. METHODS 52 patients (26 females, 26 males) received 60 indirectly made FRC FPDs, using pre-impregnated(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to investigate reasons for replacement and repair of posterior resin composite (RC) restorations placed in permanent teeth of children and adolescents attending Public Dental Health Service in Denmark. MATERIAL AND METHOD All posterior RC placed consecutively by 115 dentists over a period of 4 years were evaluated at(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the durability of extensive dentin-enamel-bonded posterior ceramic coverages in a 15 years follow-up. METHODS All extensive dentin-enamel-bonded posterior partial and complete all-ceramic coverages placed during the period November 1992-December 1998 were included. In 121 patients, 252 coverages (IPS(More)
This in vitro study compared the depth of cure obtained with six quartz tungsten halogen and light-emitting diode curing units at different exposure times and light tip-resin composite distances. Resin composite specimens (Tetric Ceram, A3; diameter 4 mm, height 6 mm) were exposed from 0-, 3-, and 6-mm distance. The curing units (200-700 mW/cm2) were used(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical long-term retention to dentin of seven adhesive systems. METHODS A total of 270 Class V restorations of four etch-and-rinse, one self-etch adhesive system and a resin-modified glass ionomer cement were placed in non-carious cervical lesions without intentional enamel involvement. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this prospective clinical trial was to evaluate the 4-year clinical performance of an ormocer-based nano-hybrid resin composite (Ceram X; Dentsply/DeTrey) in Class II restorations placed with a one-step self-etch (Xeno III; Dentsply/DeTrey) and two-step etch-and-rinse adhesive (Ivoclar Vivadent). METHODS Seventy-eight(More)
