We have previously shown that hyperbranched multi-methacrylate (H-MMA)-modified dental resins have VLC activities, lower polymerization shrinkage, and improved mechanical properties, compared to the 2,2-bis[4-(2-hydroxy-3-methacryloyolxypropoxy)phenyl]propane/triethyleneglycol dimethacrylate (BisGMA/TEGDMA) neat resin. The results are due to the unique molecular structure and high molecular weight of H-MMA intermediates. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the biocompatibility of H-MMA… CONTINUE READING
