OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanical and physical properties of a newly developed fiber reinforced dental composite. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fiber reinforced composite EverX Posterior (EXP, GC EUROPE), and other commercially available bulk fill composites, including Filtek Bulk Fill (FB, 3M ESPE), SonicFill (SF, Kerr Corp.),(More)
The current challenge in treating periodontitis is regenerating the periodontium. This motivates tissue-engineering researchers to develop scaffolds as artificial matrices that give mechanical support for osteoblasts, cementoblasts, gingival and periodontal ligament fibroblast cells. In this study, modified hyaluronic acid (HA) and chitosan (CS) were(More)
OBJECTIVE Nowadays bioactive glasses are finding increasing applications in medical practice due to their ability to stimulate re-mineralisation. However, they are intrinsically brittle materials and the study of new compositions will open up new scenarios enhancing their mechanical properties and maintaining the high bioactivity for a broader range of(More)
OBJECTIVE Many new dental composites containing mesoporous silica fillers have been developed to improve rheological properties and enhance the resin-filler interface. To investigate the correlation between the cytocompatibility of several dental composites and their composition; two aspects have been considered: presence of bisphenol A (BPA)-glycidyl(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Strategies to achieve dentin remineralization is at present an important target of restorative dentistry. Remineralization of dentin by a bioactive material is complete only when the tissue regains its functionality. This is achieved when there is adequate apatite formation which most importantly translates into improved mechanical(More)
OBJECTIVE Development of antibacterial dental composites is the ultimate goal to decrease carious disease occurrence and increase the restoration longevity. For this purpose, the quaternary ammonium dimethyl-hexadecyl-methacryloxyethyl-ammonium iodide (DHMAI) and the methacryloyloxyethylphosphorylcholine (MPC) have been incorporated in experimental(More)
