AIM To review hemophilia A with emphasis on its oral manifestations, investigations, and dental management. MATERIALS AND METHODS Search was conducted using internet-based search engines, scholarly bibliographic databases, PubMed, and Medline with key words such as "Hemophilia A," "factor VIII," "bleeding and clotting disorders," and "dental management."(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the pulpal temperature rise induced during the polymerization of flowable and non-flowable composites using light-emitting diode (LED) and halogen (quartz-tungsten-halogen) light-curing units (LCUs). METHODS Five flowable and three non-flowable composites were examined. Pulpal temperature changes were(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate in vitro the failure-forces of flowable composites at different distances from an interface edge of a bulk material. METHODS Seven materials were investigated. An edge-strength testing instrument (CK10) was used in this study. Fourteen disc specimens were prepared (12 mm x 2.5 mm) for each material using Teflon moulds, with a(More)
Creep behaviour of flowable composites was evaluated in relation to their filler fraction and the postcure period. Solid cylindrical specimens were prepared (4 x 6 mm) using steel moulds, with thorough light curing from multiple directions at 600 mW cm(-2). The specimens were divided into two groups (n=3/material) as follows: group I, loaded 5 min after(More)
Interleukin 17(IL-17) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine produced mainly by Th17 cells. The present study was undertaken to investigate a possible association between IL-17 A genetic polymorphism at (-197A/G) and susceptibility to chronic and localized aggressive periodontitis (LAgP) in an Indian population. The study was carried out on 105 subjects, which(More)
BACKGROUND This paper aimed to evaluate the application of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technology and the factors that affect the survival of restorations. MATERIALS AND METHODS A thorough literature search using PubMed, Medline, Embase, Science Direct, Wiley Online Library and Grey literature were performed from the(More)
Osseointegration is a good indication of the clinical success of titanium implants referring to the direct anchorage of such implants to the surrounding host bone. Despite the high success rate of endosseous dental implants, they do fail. A lack of primary stability, surgical trauma, and infection seem to be the most important causes of early implant(More)
For patients with shortened dental arches, many treatment options are available. The existing situation can be maintained by stabilizing the present dentition and improving the occlusion without extending the arch. Alternatively, the shortened dental arch can be extended by either a free-end saddle removable partial denture, cantilevered fixed bridge, or by(More)
Purpose. The aim of this review is to summarize and evaluate the relevant literature regarding the different ways how polyetheretherketone (PEEK) can be modified to overcome its limited bioactivity, and thereby making it suitable as a dental implant material. Study Selection. An electronic literature search was conducted via the PubMed and Google Scholar(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, oral microbiome has gained popularity among scientists. Microorganisms are no longer considered as disease-producing pathogens, rather they are now considered as partners of human in maintaining health. Since ancient times, changes in our lifestyle have affected our microbiome and the balance with their human host has been perturbed.(More)
