OBJECTIVES Sub-micron particles may assist in the delivery of compounds into dentine tubules. The surface interactions of the particles with dentine may prevent them from entering the tubules. The aim of this study is to investigate whether silica particles, treated with surfactants improves dentine tubules occlusion using both artificial and human tooth models METHODS Spherical silica particles (size 130-810nm) bearing an encapsulated ruthenium luminescent complex were coated with the… CONTINUE READING
