In a recent paper [Boothby TC, et al. (2015) Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 112(52):15976-15981], the authors concluded that the tardigrade Hypsibius dujardini had an unprecedented proportion… (More)

When hand-mixing is used, clinicians mix zinc phosphate cement to consistencies which allow proper seating of restorations. Slump tests have indicated that the same two preferred consistencies (one for cementing a single unit restoration, the other for cementing a multiple unit restoration) could be obtained at different slab temperatures for three cements… (More)
