A review of data collected for polymer-based restorative materials in the period 2005-2011. -

Forty-two randomly picked materials with some of the shades available were examined for depth of cure, flexural strength, water sorption and water solubility, and shade and color stability.

Composite depth of cure and LED dental curing lamp characteristics -

Depth of cure measurements were performed at NIOM according to ISO 4049. Test materials were Tetric EvoCeram (Ivoclar Vivadent) and Filtek Z250 (3M ESPE) colour A3. These composites were cured with 30 LED lamps using various curing methods and times. The data were collected from 2005 to 2011.

Product testing of five composites -

Product testing of commercial dental polymer-based restorative composites has been conducted on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services.

Dentin adhesives -

Adhesion between the restoration and the tooth has been a subject of considerable interest both for scientists and dental practitioner. The aspect of retention needed for survival of dental amalgam restorations has been partly omitted by the introduction of adhesive technology.

Orala zirkoniumdioxidimplantat -

Titan och titanlegeringar har under lång tid använts som orala implantat och karaktäriseras av goda mekaniska egenskaper och god biokompatibilitet. Detta är väl dokumenterat i laboratorieförsök med celler i kultur, djurförsök och ett stort antal kliniska studier under de senaste 40 åren1.

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) -lampor för ljushärdning av dentala material -

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) technology for curing dental polymeric materials, such as composites, has developed strongly in recent years and a large number of LEDs are currently on the market. (Report in Swedish).
