This investigation evaluated the shear rebond strength of Rexillium III to enamel using various resin composite luting systems (Panavia, Imperva Dual, ABC Enhanced, C&B Metabond, Optibond, and Comspan). Cast Rexillium III cylinders (3.9 x 6.0 mm) were bonded to human molar buccal enamel surfaces (n = 8) with each cement type after etching with 37%(More)
Recent developments in technology, direct placement restorative materials, and cavity preparation design have renewed interest in kinetic cavity preparation, a term to describe the use of air-abrasion for removal of tooth structure. This study compared the pulpal response of 120 teeth in mixed-breed dogs treated with four kinetic cavity preparation(More)
This study evaluated the shear bond strength of Rexillium III (Jeneric Pentron, Wallingford, CT) to enamel using various resin composite luting systems. Cast alloy cylinders (3.9 mm X 6.0 mm) were bonded with each cement to human molar buccal enamel surfaces (n = 8). The enamel was etched using a 35% phosphoric acid solution for 30 seconds. Bonded specimens(More)
Eight types of prosthetic magnet keepers were imaged in a water phantom and a living human subject by a 1.5 T magnetic resonance device. Image artifacts were present for all eight samples and ranged from 160 mm to greater than 280 mm in diameter. These artifacts obliterate vital craniocervical areas making their examination by magnetic resonance impossible.(More)
This article described laboratory and chairside techniques for making a porcelain-bonded-to-metal occlusal overlay repositioning splint and suggests how both dental laboratory technician and dentist can anticipate and overcome some problems commonly encountered during fabrication and seating. A ceramometal occlusal overlay and repositioning splint is often(More)
Internally threaded, stainless steel posts 10 mm in length and 1.82 mm in diameter or stainless-steel Para-Post dowels 1.7 mm in diameter were cemented in extracted human teeth with zinc phosphate cement. Titanium alloy screws 1.5 mm in diameter were placed in the internally threaded posts and tensile force was applied to the screws or Para-Post dowels(More)
