OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of a composite resin modified by TiO2 and TiO2/Ag nanoparticles and their influence over different properties. METHODS TiO2 and TiO2/Ag NPs were synthesized by polymeric precursor and microwave-assisted hydrothermal methods and then, characterized by different techniques. Direct contact test was performed using Filtek™ Z350XT blended with 0.5; 1 and 2% (wt.) of NPs against Streptococcus mutans to determine the best… CONTINUE READING
