Optimizing dentin bond durability: Control of collagen degradation by matrix metalloproteinases and cysteine cathepsins

Nov 28, 2017 by in Dental Materials Comments Off on Optimizing dentin bond durability: Control of collagen degradation by matrix metalloproteinases and cysteine cathepsins

Abstract Objectives Contemporary adhesives lose their bond strength to dentin regardless of the bonding system used. This loss relates to the hydrolysis of collagen matrix of the hybrid layers. The…

How and when does fabrication damage adversely affect the clinical performance of ceramic restorations?

Nov 28, 2017 by in Dental Materials Comments Off on How and when does fabrication damage adversely affect the clinical performance of ceramic restorations?

Abstract Objectives As compared to factory-processed ceramic parts, one unique trait of all-ceramic dental restorations is that they are custom-fabricated, which implies a greater susceptibility to fabrication defects. A variety…

Challenges to the clinical placement and evaluation of adhesively-bonded, cervical composite restorations

Nov 28, 2017 by in Dental Materials Comments Off on Challenges to the clinical placement and evaluation of adhesively-bonded, cervical composite restorations

Abstract Objectives The incidence of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) has been increasing. The clinical performance of resin composites in NCCLS was previously unsatisfactory due to their non-retentive forms and margins…
