OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to investigate the antibacterial activity of an adhesive resin incorporating the antibacterial monomer 12-methacryloyloxydodecylpyridinium bromide (MDPB) as well as its bonding characteristics in terms of bond strength into dentin and curing ability. METHODS An experimental adhesive resin was prepared by(More)
Ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate monomers have been previously reported to stimulate the growth of certain caries-associated bacteria on the basis of turbidity measurements. To elucidate the detail of this effect, we examined the influence of resin monomers on the growth of Streptococcus sobrinus and Streptococcus sanguis by determination of bacterial numbers(More)
OBJECTIVES Since atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) involves removal of carious lesions with manual instruments, improvement of filling materials to guarantee greater success should be considered. This study aimed to evaluate antibacterial, physical, and bonding properties of glass-ionomer cements (GIC) containing chlorhexidine (CHX), and to determine(More)
This study examined the antibacterial activity of prepolymerized resin filler, in which the bactericide quaternary ammonium was immobilized. The experimental filler was prepared by grinding prepolymerized resin blocks of methacrylate monomers, silica particles, and the antibacterial monomer methacryloyloxydodecylpyridinium bromide (MDPB). The number of(More)
OBJECTIVE Previously, we have reported that incorporation of the antibacterial monomer 12-methacryloyloxydodecylpyridinium bromide (MDPB) was effective in immobilizing bactericide in the resin matrix, and an antibacterial composite without release of the agent could be achieved. In this study, an attempt was made to increase the density of bactericide(More)
This study aimed to examine the influences of three dental resin-based restorative materials on cells associated with hard tissue regeneration using osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells. A Bis-GMA-based resin composite [Clearfil AP-X (APX)], an MMA-based resin cement [Superbond C&B (SB)], and a resin-modified glass-ionomer [Fuji Ionomer Type II LC (LC)] were tested.(More)
PURPOSE To determine and compare the intrinsic antibacterial activity of commercially available simplified adhesive systems. MATERIALS AND METHODS The antibacterial activity of five self-etching/priming one-step adhesives and three priming/bonding adhesives against Streptococcus mutans, Lactobacillus casei, and Actinomyces viscosus was assessed by the(More)
Previously, we have reported that sealants incorporating bisphenol A dimethacrylate showed estrogenicity by a reporter gene assay. This study tested the hypothesis that commercial composites, which contain various monomers and additives, exhibit estrogenic activity in vitro. The estrogenic activities of eluates obtained from 24 composites and 18 chemicals(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study was designed to test the null hypothesis that there is no difference in the fracture resistance of pulpless teeth restored with different types of post-core systems and full coverage crowns. METHODS Extracted human upper premolars were restored with a fiber post, prefabricated metallic post or cast metallic post-core. Teeth(More)
This paper reviews the research conducted on the evaluation of antibacterial properties of commercial composites and adhesive systems, in addition to the discussion on many attempts to achieve antibacterial composites or adhesives. With regard to composites, commercially available products including fluoride-releasing materials have no antibacterial effect(More)
