Background/purpose Early diagnosis of vertical root fracture (VRF) has been a great challenge. Since there is no single specific etiology identified, prevention of VRFs in endodontically treated teeth is quite difficult. The study aimed to evaluate the clinical associated factors of VRFs. Materials and methods A retrospective observational study o...
Article
The surface of Ti6Al4V substrate was modified by two ways: micro-powder blasting and co-blast technique. Micro-powder blasting was done using Al2O3 (of three different sizes) or SiC particles. Co-blast technique was done using the same particles co-blasted with hydroxyapatite (HA) particles. The morphology, roughness, deep impact and contact angle...

Background/purpose: Diagnosis of vertical root fractures (VRFs) can often be challenging due to the similarity of signs and symptoms with other common dental infectious diseases. This study was aimed at evaluating the potential relationship between VRFs and commonly used clinical diagnostic factors. Methods: 330 root-filled teeth with endodontic...

Background/purpose: Although unset mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) has some cytotoxicity, MTA is still a biocompatible material suitable for doing apexification. This study assessed the outcomes for 8 necrotic immature open-apex permanent maxillary central incisors treated by MTA apexification using poly(ε-caprolactone) fiber mesh (PCL-FM) as an...
Article
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) layers were prepared on a Ti substrate by using oxygen plasma immersion ion implantation (oxygen PIII). The surface chemical states, structure, and morphology of the layers were studied using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, Raman microscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscope. The m...
Article
Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is a biocompatible material for direct pulp capping. This study was designed to compare the clinical outcomes of pulp-exposed teeth treated with either poly(ε-caprolactone) fiber mesh (PCL-FM) as a barrier for MTA (so-called PCL-FM/MTA) or MTA direct pulp capping. Sixty human vital teeth were evenly divided into 4 g...

Background/Purpose Traumatic injury often results in pulp necrosis of immature permanent incisors in children. This study compared clinical outcomes for 40 necrotic immature permanent incisors treated with calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] or mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) apexification/apexogenesis. Methods Forty necrotic open-apex incisors from 40 c...

Internal resorption is a rare condition in permanent teeth, and may result from trauma, caries, or restorative procedures. Internal resorption is usually asymptomatic and is first identified as a round-shaped enlargement of a root-canal space on routine radiographs. Large resorption defects may result in penetration of the tooth into the periodonti...

A mixture of hospital post-commercial polymer waste (LDPE/HDPE/PP/PS) was pyrolyzed over various catalysts using a fluidized-bed reactor operating isothermally at ambient pressure. The yield of volatile hydrocarbons with zeolitic catalysts (ZSM-5>MOR>USY) were higher than with non-zeolitic catalysts (MCM-41>ASA). MCM-41 with large mesopores and ASA...
