Surface properties and bond strength measurements of N-vinylcaprolactam (NVC)-containing glass-ionomer cements.


STATEMENT OF PROBLEM N-vinylcaprolactam (NVC)-containing glass ionomers are promising dental restorative materials with improved mechanical properties; however, little information is available on other physical characteristics of these types of modified glass ionomers, especially their surface properties. Understanding the surface characteristics and… (More)
