BACKGROUND/AIM This paper explored the correlation between cuspal inclination and tooth cracked syndrome by measuring and reconstructing the cuspal inclinations of cracked maxillary first molars through three-dimensional (3D) finite element analysis (FEA). MATERIAL AND METHODS The cuspal inclinations of 11 maxillary left first molars with cracked tooth(More)
To fabricate high-strength diatomite-based ceramics for dental applications, the layer-by-layer technique was used to coat diatomite particles with cationic [poly(allylamine hydrochloride)] and anionic [poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate)] polymers to improve the dispersion and adsorption of positively charged nano-ZrO(2) (zirconia) as a reinforcing agent. The(More)
The topographical features and material composition of scaffolds have a powerful influence on cell behaviors such as proliferation and differentiation. Here, scaffolds consisting of aligned fibers with incorporated bioactive collagen I were tested for their ability to enhance osteogenesis in vitro. Rat adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ADSCs) were(More)
Constructing biomimetic structure and incorporating bioactive molecules is an effective strategy to achieve a more favorable cell response. To explore the effect of electrospinning (ES) nanofibrous architecture and collagen I (COL I)-incorporated modification on tuning osteoblast response, a resorbable membrane composed of poly(lactic-co-glycolic(More)
