PURPOSE The focus of this systematic review was to assess the published data concerning zirconia dental implant abutments from various aspects. MATERIALS AND METHODS To identify suitable literature, an electronic search was performed using PubMed. The keywords "zirconia," "zirconium," "ceramic," "dental abutments," "dental implants," "plaque," and(More)
The relationship between the amount of hydroxyl radicals generated by photolysis of H(2)O(2) and bactericidal activity was examined. H(2)O(2) (1 M) was irradiated with laser light at a wavelength of 405 nm to generate hydroxyl radicals. Electron spin resonance spin trapping analysis showed that the amount of hydroxyl radicals produced increased with the(More)
The aims of this paper were to review the literature on shortened dental arches with special focus on publications of the Käyser/Nijmegen group, and to evaluate the discussions on the shortened dental arch concept found in the literature. A MEDLINE (PubMed) search was conducted for articles in English published in the dental literature from 1966 to November(More)
The aim of the present investigation was to study the influence of grain size on the strength of yttria-stabilized zirconia upon exposure to an additional heat treatment, mimicking the veneering process. The green bodies of zirconia discs prepared by cold isostatic pressing were sintered at 1,425, 1,500, or 1,575°C to customize the grain size. The(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether different fabrication processes, such as the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system or the manual build-up technique, affect the fracture resistance of composite resin-based crowns. Lava Ultimate (LU), Estenia C&B (EC&B), and lithium disilicate glass-ceramic IPS e.max press (EMP)(More)
Acid-electrolyzed water (AEW) is commonly used as a disinfectant in the agricultural and medical fields. Although several studies have been conducted to examine its toxicity in vitro and in vivo, the cytotoxic mechanism of AEW has never been verified. The purpose of the present study was to elucidate the underlying mechanism by which AEW exerts its in vitro(More)
In this research, an extension of a dyadic (pair) team cognition model is proposed to describe the cognition of a team with more than two persons. This model provides a comprehensive framework for analysing the cognitive aspects of team interactions, such as team situation awareness, team memory, and human-agent interactions. One important aspect discussed(More)
BACKGROUND Acid electrolyzed water (AEW), which is produced through the electrolysis of dilute sodium chloride (NaCl) or potassium chloride solution, is used as a disinfectant in various fields because of its potent antimicrobial activity. The hydroxyl radical, an oxygen radical species, is often suggested as a putative active ingredient for AEW(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate survival rate and the reasons of failure of fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) without having regular maintenance in a long-term after insertion. MATERIALS AND METHODS The subjects were 55 patients (69 FDPs, 142 abutment teeth) who had received no regular maintenance after insertion of FDPs at the(More)
