Silver and gold have been used for centuries as antimicrobial agents. The aim of the study was to investigate diametral tensile strength, microhardness, ion release and light transmission of experimental resin composites. Flowable dental composite SDR (Dentsply, United Kingdom) was modified by nanogold, nanosilver and silica addition. The metal ion release,(More)
The aim of this paper was to identify and to assess in semi-quantified way the release of different ions from composite and compomer restorative materials subjected to 0.9% NaCl solution, which simulates the environment of the human body. In the present study, the number of ions (Al, Ag, Ba, Sr, Ti) released from dental fillings over time (one week, one(More)
Unchecked bacterial invasion of dentine leads to inflammatory pulp disease, root canal infection, and periapical disease. Enterococcus faecalis and Streptococcus mutans play an important role in these outcomes. The aim of the study was to investigate the antibacterial properties of Syntac Classic, Optibond FL, XP Bond, Bond 1, NRC, Clearfil Protect Bond,(More)
The work concerns the analysis of influence of the wear process of endodontic instruments on the mechanical and physico-chemical properties of the materials from which they are made. A detailed study of the microstructure, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance in the environment simulating work of the tool was conducted. The research was done for(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to evaluate corrosion resistance of Wirobond C® alloy after chemical passivation treatment. METHODS The alloy surface undergone chemical passivation treatment in four different media. Corrosion studies were carried out by means of electrochemical methods in saline solution. Corrosion effects were determined using SEM.(More)
