The adhesion of oral bacteria on teeth and filling materials is a function of the surface energy and consequently the contact angle of a drop of fluid on the respective material. This study determines the contact angle on various filling materials (composites, glass ionomere cement) before and after surface polishing. Thirty and sixty minutes after… CONTINUE READING
