OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is evaluating the antibacterial activity of resin composites containing ZnO nanoparticles against Streptococcus mutans and examining their physical and mechanical properties. METHODS The properties of flowable resin composites containing 0-5wt.% nano-ZnO are investigated using different tests: RESULTS Although the agar diffusion test reveals no significant difference between the groups, the direct contact test demonstrates that by increasing the nanoparticle… CONTINUE READING
