 Use of the low-energy helium-neon laser (LEL) appears to be a simple atraumatic technique for the prevention and treatment of mucositis of various origins. Preliminary findings, and significant results obtained for chemotherapy-induced mucositis in a previous phase III study, prompted a randomized multicenter double-blind trial to evaluate LEL in the(More)
PURPOSE The literature contains conflicting data about in vitro microleakage evaluations and their usefulness and reliability. No standardization has yet been established. Here we consider features of published studies that might affect the results of the in vitro microleakage tests. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed 144 in vitro microleakage studies,(More)
OBJECTIVES Dentine modifies pulpward diffusion of monomers leaching from restorative materials. Thus, remaining dentine thickness must be taken into account during in vitro cytotoxicity tests. This in vitro study was designed to determine the influence of dentine permeability on the outcome of a cytotoxicity test. METHODS Dentine slices were made from 36(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of applied pressure and measurement time on the in vitro measurement of hydraulic conductance of human dentine. Dentine slices were prepared from 50 third molars. Water was forced through the slices under a constant hydrostatic pressure. Five pressures were tested: 1.3 kPa (n = 10), 13.3 kPa (n = 10),(More)
This study investigated cytotoxicity of cement fragments harvested from two prosthesis revisions by the MTT test using L929 fibroblasts and human osteoblasts. The results did not show any toxicity of the extracts prepared after 48 and 78 months implantation. We consider that no MMA monomer has been released from the cement fragments. Histological studies on(More)
OBJECTIVES Since dentin permeability ultimately affects bond strength, the purpose of this study was to compare the effects of different concentrations of maleic acid, and different exposure times on dentin permeability. METHODS One hundred and thirty freshly extracted human non-carious third molars were used. Hydraulic conductance was determined after(More)
We have developed two colonizable bone cements: the first is a partially resorbable bisphenol-alpha-glycidyl methacrylate (Bis-GMA)-based cement (PRC) and the second is a calcium phosphate cement (CPC). PRC is composed of aluminous silanized ceramic and particles of a bioresorbable polymer embedded in a matrix of Bis-GMA. CPC consisted of tricalcium(More)
PURPOSE To test how the number of sections affects the maximum depth of tracer penetration. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was simultaneously performed in three different centers. C-shaped Class V cavities were made on 60 human third molars. The cavities were located across the cementum-enamel junction. One restorative system was used: Scotchbond(More)
Replication of the space between a tooth and its cast crown, using a light-body silicone supported by a heavy-body silicone, is a recognized technique to evaluate the quality of a restoration. This study validates a similar method that is of great clinical and experimental interest. Whatever the type of silicone used, comparison is possible between(More)
OBJECTIVES Most of the devices used to evaluate the cytotoxicity of resin-based composites in vitro use a dentin barrier test. However, it is difficult to obtain the number of freshly extracted teeth, all on the same day, that is necessary for powerful statistical analysis. Tooth cryopreservation provides a way to build up a supply of teeth. This in vitro(More)
