OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the internal fit (IF) of glass-infiltrated alumina (ICA--In-Ceram Alumina), yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystals (Y-TZP--IPS e.max ZirCAD), and metal-ceramic (MC--Ni-Cr alloy) crowns. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty standardized resin-tooth replicas of a maxillary first molar were produced for(More)
The wear resistance of denture teeth is important to the longevity of removable prostheses of edentulous patients. The ability of denture teeth to maintain a stable occlusal relationship over time may be influenced by this property. The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the wear resistance of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) denture teeth based(More)
The objective of this work was to select the most suitable procedure to immobilize lipase from Penicillium camembertii (Lipase G). Different techniques and supports were evaluated, including physical adsorption on hydrophobic supports octyl-agarose, poly(hydroxybutyrate) and Amberlite resin XAD-4; ionic adsorption on the anionic exchange resin MANAE-agarose(More)
Ethyl esters of babassu oil were synthesized by alkaline catalysis to make the green production of biodiesel feasible with simple methods and available technology. Babassu oil is a transparent, light yellow oil extracted from the seeds of the babassu palm (Orbinya sp), and due to its high saturated fatty acid composition (83%), it is considered a(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the effect of an alkaline solution and two 10-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate (MDP)-based primer agents on bond strength to zirconia (yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconium polycrystal [Y-TZP]) through the shear bond strength (SBS) test. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty square-shaped Y-TZP samples were embedded in an(More)
This study evaluated the effect of framework design on the fracture resistance of metal-ceramic implant-supported crowns. Screw-retained molar crowns with a screw access hole composed of metal or porcelain were compared to a cement-retained crown (control). For each group (n = 10), five crowns were subjected to dynamic loading (1,200,000 x 100 N x 2 Hz at(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the tensile resistance of mineralized and demineralized bones. Twelve mice were used. Specimens were collected and divided into groups 1 and 2, mineralized and demineralized calvarial bone, and groups 3 and 4, mineralized and demineralized femoral bone. There was not a statistically significant difference (analysis of(More)
