PURPOSE To investigate pulpal injury by measuring odontoblast numbers, and pulp dentin repair activity by measuring reactionary dentin area, in relation to the remaining dentin thickness (RDT) of cavity preparations in 217 human teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cavities were restored with adhesive bonded composite, resin-modified glass-ionomer cement, zinc(More)
Using a model of atherosclerosis in minipigs, we analyzed changes in elastic structure within the medial sections of the abdominal aorta and left interventricular coronary artery both in the vicinity of and distal to atheromatous plaques. Twenty-four animals, divided into three groups, were fed either a control diet or a hypercholesterolemic and(More)
BACKGROUND Each year, about 90 million new restorations are placed in the United States and 200 million are replaced. Controversy surrounds the pulpal reactions and frequency of bacterial microleakage associated with common restorative materials. The authors investigated and compared pulpal reactions to different types of restorative materials. METHODS(More)
This study investigated cytotoxicity of cement fragments harvested from two prosthesis revisions by the MTT test using L929 fibroblasts and human osteoblasts. The results did not show any toxicity of the extracts prepared after 48 and 78 months implantation. We consider that no MMA monomer has been released from the cement fragments. Histological studies on(More)
OBJECTIVES Dentinal repair following cavity restoration is dependent on several parameters including the numbers of surviving odontoblasts. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of cavity cutting and restoration treatments on post-operative odontoblast numbers. METHODS 353 Standardised non-exposed rectangular Class V cavities, were cut into(More)
The effects of inflammatory activity following surgical intervention can injure pulp tissues; in severe cases it can lead to pulpal complications. With this article, the authors report on the effects of cavity preparation and restoration events and how they can interact together to reduce or increase the severity of pulpal inflammatory activity in 202(More)
OBJECTIVES The purposes of this retrospective work were: (1) to determine the relative importance of bacteria on cavity walls, remaining dentin thickness and post-operative time on pulpal inflammation after cavity restoration; (2) to compare the respective influences of bacterial microleakage and the restorative material itself on pulp reaction severity.

OBJECTIVES This study compared the intraosseous biocompatibility of Vitremer, a new hydrophilic glass-ionomer cement, to that of Super EBA. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-two New Zealand rabbits were anesthetized, the mandibular bone exposed, and two holes were drilled through the cortical plate. The materials were loaded into silicone carriers and inserted into the(More)
