  Bulk-filling of high C-factor posterior cavities: Effect on adhesion to cavity-bottom dentin 4/8/2013
  Both filling technique and composite type can have a great impact on the adhesion of the composite, in particular in high C-factor cavities. While the bulk-fill flowable base composite provided satisfactory bond strengths regardless of filling technique and cavity depth, adhesion failed when conventional composites were used in bulk.   view »
  NUPRO Sensodyne prophylaxis paste with NovaMin for the treatment of dentin hypersensitivity: A 4-week clinical study 2/14/2013
  The primary objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of NUPRO Sensodyne Prophylaxis Paste with NovaMin, with and without fluoride, to a standard prophylaxis paste without fluoride (control) in reducing dentin hypersensitivity immediately after a single application following dental scaling and root planing. The secondary objective was to compare the duration of sensitivity relief up to 28 days after a single application of the NUPRO pastes with NovaMin compared to the control paste.   view »

  CeramX: Color Stability of Nanocomposites Polished with One-Step Systems 2/14/2013

  CeramX: Surface Roughness of Novel Resin Composites Polished with One-step Systems 2/14/2013
  One-step systems can polish resin composites containing nanoparticles with a reduced time application; however, their effectiveness depends on material properties. This study: 1) analyzed the surface roughness of five novel resin composites that contain nanoparticles after polishing with three different one-step systems and 2) evaluated the effectiveness of these polishers and their possible surface damage using scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis.   view »
  Clinical Application of the “Natural Layering Concept” 2/14/2013

Since this concept has become a reference in the field of composite restorations, the aim of this paper is to familiarize the practitioner with the features and clinical aspects of this new technique.   view »
  WaveOne― First experiences of third-year students 2/14/2013
  WaveOne is a successful one-file-system that is easy to learn for first-time users, results in less breakage and allows the use of one single-use instrument. The results of this study show that the mean instrumentation time for WaveOne was much shorter than for hand instrumentation. The students were nearly ten times faster with Wave One than with hand instrumentation. No instruments were fractured. In addition, the resulting shape with WaveOne was much better, smoother and without zip, elbow or ledge formation.   view »

  Cuspal Deflection and Microleakage in Premolar Teeth Restored with Bulk-fill Flowable Resin-based Composite Base Materials 8/29/2012
  To assess the cuspal deflection and cervical microleakage of standardised Class II cavities incrementally filled with a dimethacrylate RBC or bulk-fill flowable RBC bases. Methods: Twenty-four sound upper premolar teeth with Class II cavities were allocated to three groups (n = 8). Restoration of the teeth involved the placement of an RBC (GrandioSO) in eight oblique increments (Group A) or Groups B and C were restored to within 2 mm of the palatal cusp in a single increment with bulk-fill flowable RBC bases (SDR and x-tra base) before the two occlusal cavity increments were placed with GrandioSO. Buccal and palatal cusp deflections were recorded postirradiation using a twin channel deflection measuring gauge. Following restoration, the teeth were thermocycled, immersed in 0.2% basic fuchsin dye for 24 h, sectioned and examined for cervical microleakage.   view »
  Investigations on a Methacrylate-based Flowable Composite Based on the SDRTM Technology 8/29/2012
  Monomer development for a reduced shrinkage of composite materials still challenges the modern research. The purpose of this study was to analyse the shrinkage behaviour of an innovative composite material for dental restorations based on a resin system that is claimed to control polymerization kinetics having incorporated a photoactive group within the resin.   view »
  Evaluation of a Conventional Glass Ionomer Cement with New Zinc Formulation: Effect of Coating, Aging and Storage Agents 8/29/2012
  The study focused on a recently launched conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) with a particular chemical formulation of both, filler and acrylic liquid, by analysing its mechanical behaviour in comparison to three conventional GICs. Furthermore, the effect of resin coating and storage conditions was evaluated.   view »
  Behaviour of General Dental Practitioners in Germany Regarding Posterior Restorations with Flowable Composites 7/31/2012
  Because the recommendation to use flowables for posterior restorations is still a matter of debate, the objective of this study was to determine in a nationwide survey in Germany how frequently, for what indications, and for what reasons, German dentists use flowable composites in posterior teeth. In addition, the acceptance of a simplified filling technique for posterior restorations using a low stress flowable composite was evaluated.   view »
