We use J, H and KS 2MASS photometry to study colour-magnitude (CMDs) and colour-colour diagrams, structure and mass distribution in the ionizing open cluster NGC 6611. Reddening variation throughout the cluster region is taken into account followed by field-star decontamination of the CMDs. Decontamination is also applied to derive the density profile and(More)
Replacement of amalgam restorations may lead to more destruction of sound dental tissue, is often a time-consuming chair procedure, and it does not always provide a favorable risk/benefit balance for the patient. This article reviews the clinical alternative of repairing instead of completely replacing old amalgam restorations. During a 2-year period, 45(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the microleakage of a universal hydrophilic adhesive (OptiBond dual-cure) by itself as a pit and fissure sealant compared to that of an ionomeric product (VariGlass) and two hydrophobic sealants (Delton and Fluroshield). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-four extracted human third molars were sealed with one of these four materials under(More)
Harbour seals and harbour porpoises are top predator species from the North Sea, have long life spans and hence, are known to accumulate high levels of anthropogenic contaminants. To gain knowledge about the behaviour of naturally-produced compounds in these marine mammals, the biomagnification of naturally-produced methoxylated polybrominated diphenyl(More)
A study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of three mouthrinses (Plax, Cepacol and Fluordent) to inhibit acid formation from plaque collected from 21 volunteer dental students. Plaque was collected on each side of the mouth, two hours after breakfast, once-a-week, after a period of 48 hours without any oral hygiene other than the use of the(More)
