    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated how zirconia thickness affects shear bond strength (SBS) between zirconia and dual-cure resin cement. Eighty specimens (40 blocks of 1 mm thickness zirconia and 20 of each 1.5 and 2 mm) were divided into 8 groups according to zirconia thickness and light-curing time. Group A, B, C, and D were light-polymerized during 20 s and group E, F, G, and H were light-cured during 40 s. Self-adhesive dual-cure resin cement was placed onto the zirconia surfaces and then light-polymerized. The mean SBS of the 40 s curing time group was statistically higher than that of the 20 s curing time group. However, curing time did not affect the SBS significantly in the 2 mm thickness groups. The mean SBS of the 1.5 and 2 mm groups were statistically lower than those 1 mm groups. Therefore, zirconia thickness significantly affected the SBS of self-adhesive dual-cure resin cement.

    ABSTRACT: Direct pulp-capping is a method for treating exposed vital pulp with dental material to facilitate the formation of reparative dentin and to maintain vital pulp. Two types of pulp-capping materials, calcium hydroxide and mineral trioxide aggregate, have been most commonly used in clinics, and an adhesive resin has been considered a promising capping material. However, until now, there has been no comprehensive review of these materials. Therefore, in this paper, the composition, working mechanisms and clinical outcome of these types of pulp-capping materials are reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to compare the agreement rate (%) and color difference (ΔE*ab) of three dental color-measuring devices, with the visual shade identification. The tooth color were determined by two operators, which were advised to select a VITA classic shade tab in each other’s agreement. The Shadepilot (SP), CrystalEye (CE) and ShadeVision (SV) were used to measure tooth color. Statistically analyses include agreement rate (%), color difference (ΔE*ab), McNemar test (p=0.05), Student’s t-test (p=0.05) and Bland Altman scatterplots. The SP had an agreement of 56.3% with the visual shade determination, the CE 49.0% and SV 51.3%. ΔE*ab of the visually and instrumentally selected shade tabs and natural teeth were frequently above the threshold for acceptability. Comparing both methods, for SP ΔE*ab values differ in a range of clinical acceptability.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of Er:YAG laser irradiation and adhesive systems on the microtensile bond strength (μTBS) of flowable resin to dentin. The flat dentin surfaces of 30 wisdom molar teeth were randomly divided into 3 groups (n=10): no laser etching (control), laser etching using QSP and MSP modes. After the application of the flowable and the composite resin, and 5,000 thermal aging, the μTBS results were analyzed with two-way analysis of variance and Tukey’s honest standard of difference (HSD) tests. There were no significant differences between the μTBS of the self-etch group and the total-etch groups for MSP (p>0.05). MSP mode is a useful pulse mode for dentin surface treatment due to elimination of the acid-etching step.

    ABSTRACT: This study compared the fracture toughness values (KIC), which were derived from simplified techniques: the indentation fracture (IF), the indentation strength (IS), and fractographic approach to that from a standard testing using surface cracks in flexure (SCF). Forty bar specimens, twenty IPS Empress® Esthetic and twenty IPS e.max®Ceram were prepared. Ten specimens in each material were tested by IF technique, IS technique and fractographic approach, and additional 10 specimens were tested by the SCF technique. This study showed that the mean KIC derived from fractographic approach were not significantly different from that of the SCF in both materials (p>0.05) whereas the mean KIC from indentation techniques rarely agreed with those of the standard technique. The KIC determination is sensitive to the methods used that affect accuracy. Consequently, test selection should be based on a sound understanding and inherent limitations of each technique.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to observe the effects of different test conditions on the flexural properties of root canal post. Metal- and fiber-reinforced composite root canal posts of various diameters were measured to determine flexural properties using a threepoint bending test at different conditions. In this study, the span length/post diameter ratio of root canal posts varied from 3.0 to 10.0. Multiple regression models for maximum load as a dependent variable were statistically significant. The models for flexural properties as dependent variables were statistically significant, but linear regression models could not be fitted to data sets. At a low span length/post diameter ratio, the flexural properties were distorted by occurrence of shear stress in short samples. It was impossible to obtain high span length/post diameter ratio with root canal posts. The addition of parameters or coefficients is necessary to appropriately represent the flexural properties of root canal posts.

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the biomineralization and dentinal tubules occlusion abilities of the carboxyl-terminated polyamidoamine dendrimer (PAMAM-COOH) on human demineralized dentin in vivo at different time points. Demineralization dentin model with and without treated with PAMAM-COOH were sutured to the interior side of the rat’s cheeks, that was incubated in the rats’ saliva for 2, 4 and 6 weeks respectively. Finally, the newly formed precipitates were characterized by SEM, EDS, XRD and microhardness test. The hydroxyapatite (HA) on the dentin treated with PAMAM-COOH were formed gradually with the time going by, and the regenerated HA has a similar crystal structure with natural dentin, whereas the crystallites did not exist on the control group. The microhardness of PAMAM-COOH-applied specimens had a significantly higher than those without application. These results suggest that the PAMAM-COOH promoted the biomineralization of demineralized dentin and displayed favourable effects on blocking the open dentinal tubules.

    ABSTRACT: Though the Er:YAG laser (ErL) has been used in periodontal therapy, the irradiated tip damage has not been studied in detail. In this study, the change in the energy output, surface morphology, and temperature of quartz tips was evaluated following contact irradiation. Soft tissue, calculus on extracted human teeth, and porcine bone were irradiated by ErL for 60 min at 14.2 or 28.3 J/cm2/pulse and 20 Hz with or without water spray. The energy output ratio declined the most in the calculus group, followed by the bone and soft tissue groups with and/or without water spray. Carbon contamination was detected in all groups, and contamination by P, Ca, and/or other inorganic elements was observed in the calculus and bone groups. The rate of energy output reduction and the degree of surface alteration/contamination is variously influenced by the targeting tissue, temperature elevation of the tip and water spray.

    ABSTRACT: The changes of denture base acrylic resin surface properties under cold plasma and the relationships with time were investigated. Cold plasma treated the specimens for 30 s, 60 s, 90 s, and 120 s, respectively. Water contact angles were measured immediately after the treatment, 48 h, 15 days and 30 days later. Surface roughness was measured with 3-D laser scanning microscope. Candida albicans adherence was evaluated by CFU counting. Chemical composition was monitored by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy analysis. Water contact angle reduced after treated for 30 s. No changes were observed with time prolonged, except the durability. There were no differences in roughness among all groups. However, treatment groups showed significantly lower C. albicans adherence. XPS demonstrated a decrease in C/O, and this reduction was affected by treatment time. Cold plasma was an effective means of increasing hydrophilicity of acrylic resin and reducing C. albicans adherence without affecting physical properties.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was the effects of different light curing methods on marginal sealing and resin composite adaptation to the cavity wall using the dye penetration test and environmental scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations. Cylindrical cavities were prepared on cervical regions. The teeth were restored with Clearfil Liner Bond 2 V adhesive and filled with Clearfil Photo Bright or Palfique Estelite resin composites. These resins were cured with a conventional light-curing method or a slow-start curing method. After thermal cycling, the specimens were subjected to the dye penetration test to evaluate marginal sealing and adaptation of the resin composites to the cavity walls. These resin-tooth interfaces were then observed using environmental SEM. The light-cured resin composite, which exhibited increased contrast ratios during polymerization, suggests high compensation for polymerization stress using the slow-start curing method. There was a high correlation between dye penetration test and environmental SEM observation.

    ABSTRACT: This study investigated the in vitro anti-demineralization effects of resin-based temporary filling materials containing surface prereacted glass-ionomer (S-PRG) filler on dentin. Bovine root dentin specimens with a 3×3 mm experimental surface were divided into four treatment groups: DuraSeal (DU) as a control, S-PRG filler-free temporary material (S0), material containing 10% (S10) and 20% (S20) S-PRG filler. Each material was applied to 3×2 mm of the experimental surface, and the specimens were immersed in 8% methylcellulose gel demineralization system for one week at 37˚C. Mineral profiles and integrated mineral loss (IML) of lesions induced on the surface (3×1 mm) adjacent to the materials were computed by transversal microradiography. S10 and S20 yielded thick surface layers and shallow lesion bodies, with significantly lower IML than DU and S0 (p<0.05, Tukey’s test). These findings indicate that temporary filling resin-based materials containing over 10% of S-PRG filler content have anti-demineralization effects on adjacent dentin.

    ABSTRACT: We evaluated the antibacterial properties of three disinfectants [2% chlorhexidine (CHX), 6% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), and 0.01% urushiol)] against Streptococcus mutans and their effects on bond strength of ScotchbondTM Universal. The reduction in bacterial growth was evaluated by the colony counting method. Total 105 specimens were assigned to seven groups, according to surface pretreatment: control group (C) without pretreatment; chlorhexidine gluconate with rinse (CR) or without rinse (CD); NaOCl with rinse (NR) or without rinse (ND); and urushiol with rinse (UR) or without rinse (UD). The shear bond test was performed at a cross-head speed of 0.5 mm/min. None of the disinfected specimens had viable microbes after a 30 min incubation. The control group exhibited the strongest bond; however, no significant difference was detected with the disinfectant-treated groups, except weak bonding with ND group. These findings suggest that all disinfectants tested had strong antibacterial capacity and may better be rinsed away.

    ABSTRACT: In orthodontics, a reduction in static friction between the brackets and wire is important to enable easy tooth movement. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of a homogeneous diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating on the whole surfaces of slots in stainless steel orthodontic brackets on reducing the static friction between the brackets and the wire. The DLC coating was characterized using Raman spectroscopy, surface roughness and contact angle measurements, and SEM observations. Rectangular stainless steel and titanium-molybdenum alloy wires with two different sizes were employed, and the static friction between the brackets and wire was measured under dry and wet conditions. The DLC coating had a thickness of approximately 1.0 μm and an amorphous structure was identified. The results indicated that the DLC coating always led to a reduction in static friction. © 2015, Japanese Society for Dental Materials and Devices. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the effect of resin coating (COA) on dentin bond strength (BS) of five resin cements (RC). Ten groups were tested, according to RC and COA combinations. RCs were applied onto prepolymerized resin discs, which were bonded to dentin surfaces. Teeth were stored in water for 24 h, subjected to 5,000 thermocycles and sectioned to obtain beams, which were tested in tension. The COA increased the BS for Panavia F2.0, RelyX Unicem, and RelyX Unicem 2, whereas no changes in BS were observed for two other RCs; Clearfil SA Cement, which showed the lowest BS among groups with COA and G-Cem, which showed the highest BS among RCs without COA. COA can increase the BS of RC depending on the type of RC. © 2015, Japanese Society for Dental Materials and Devices. All rights reserved.
