Resin composites with antibacterial activity may be useful for preventing the secondary caries frequently seen around restorations. The purposes of this study were to investigate antibacterial light-activated dental resin composites incorporating each of two silver-supported antibacterial materials and evaluate their long-lasting inhibitory effect against(More)
The solubility of resin luting cement remains unknown although the use of resin luting cement for routine cementation of restorations has increased. The purpose of this in-vitro study was to compare the solubilities of three resin cements currently in clinical use with three brands of conventional luting agents. The three resin luting cements, All-Bond C&B(More)
Dental resin composites with antibacterial activity may be useful for preventing the secondary caries frequently seen around restorations. Three types of silver-supported antibacterial materials (Novaron, Amenitop and AIS) inhibited the growth of the major oral pathogen Streptococcus mutans. Minimum inhibitory amounts in suspensions of Novaron, Amenitop and(More)
This study compared the durability and shear bond strengths of combinations of three adhesive primers and three resin cements bonded to silver-palladium-copper-gold (Ag-Pd-Cu-Au) and cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) alloys. The adhesive luting cements Imperva Dual, Panavia 21, and Super-Bond C&B and the adhesive primers Metal Primer material, V-Primer material, and(More)
The effects of filler composition and surface treatment of titanium dioxide (TiO2) on the shear bond strength to noble metal and mechanical properties of opaque dental resin composites were assessed. A series of fillers for resin composites were prepared with untreated TiO2 or treated silica/alumina-coated TiO2 with silane coupling agent; these fillers were(More)
Resin composites with antibacterial activity may be useful to decrease the frequency of secondary caries around restorations. The purposes of this study were to investigate the antibacterial activity of light-activated resin composites incorporating one of three silver-containing materials and to evaluate their long-term inhibitory effect against(More)
The sol-gel dipping process, in which liquid silicon alkoxide is transformed into the solid silicon-oxygen network, can produce a thin film coating of silica (SiO2). The features of this method are high homogeneity and purity of the thin SiO2 film and a low sinter temperature, which are important in preparation of coating films that can protect from(More)
