Recent advances in the theory and mechanism of adhesive resin bonding to dentin: a critical review.
TLDR
This review analyzes current theoretical and mechanism-related issues of interest in adhesive resin bonding to dentin, and outlines the continuing problems that need to be overcome in the future. Expand
Hearing-damage Risk and Communication Interference in Dental Practice
TLDR
It appears that hearing-damage risk is slight among dentists using modern equipment, however, further noise control in handpieces is necessary so that error-free communication during dental procedures can be ensured. Expand
Colour Changes of Orthodontic Elastomeric Module Materials Exposed to in Vitro Dietary Media
TLDR
Clinicians should make patients aware of the effect of consuming beverages and spices on the colour stability of their selected ligature modules, and patients consuming large amounts of spices or coffee should avoid clear modules made by extrusion processing because of their tendency to discolour. Expand
Extended creep behavior of dental composites using time-temperature superposition principle.
TLDR
The results indicate that resin volume fraction and filler parameters may play a critical role in the long-term deformation and energy release processes, and these processes may be an important influence on theLong-term clinical durability of composite restorations. Expand
Fracture resistance of soft tissue level implants after cyclic loading and external modification.
TLDR
The mean load required to fracture the abutment/implant assembly decreased significantly after various amounts of implant collar preparation, and the effect on the failure load of preparing a 0.5-mm chamfer finish line on an implant collar at various apical depths was evaluated. Expand
Effect of primer solvent and curing mode on dentin shear bond strength and interface morphology.
TLDR
There was a significant difference in shear bond strength as a function of cure mode, but not of solvent, and the mean bond strength was higher for dual-cure systems studied. Expand
Evaluation of intermolecular interactions of self-etch dentin adhesive primer molecules with type 1 collagen: computer modeling and in vitro binding analysis.
TLDR
It is suggested that the ability of self-etch dentin primer systems to bond effectively to dentin is not limited to the interaction of the primer with the hydroxyapatite of dentin, but also due to the ability to prime dentin efficiently through intermolecular interactions between the primer and its calcium salt with the collagen matrix.

Analysis of stress relaxation in temporization materials in dentistry.
TLDR
The results showed that PMMA and composite resins were superior in their ability to maintain constant strain without excessive dissipation of applied stress than PEMA resin, which suggests that internal strain caused by molecular relaxation events may lead to excessive dimensional instability in PEMA. Expand
Elastic, viscoelastic and viscoplastic contributions to compliance during deformation under stress in prosthodontic temporization materials
TLDR
PEMA is susceptible to significantly greater elastic, viscoelastic, and more importantly to viscoplastic compliant behavior compared with bisacryl composite and PMMA provisional crown and bridge materials, indicating high-dimensional instability and poor stiffness and resiliency in PEMA appliances. Expand
Microleakage of compomer class V restorations: effect of load cycling, thermal cycling, and cavity shape differences.
TLDR
Class V restorations demonstrated increased microleakage under the conditions of thermal cycling and nonretentive cavity design, andThermocycling and cavity preparation had a significant effect on microleaks, but load cycling did not. Expand
