Effects of hydrogen peroxide bleaching on human dentin and enamel microstructure and function

Gökduman, Kurtuluş
In recent years bleaching of vital teeth has become popular among both dentist and patients. Different bleaching agents were used for this purpose. They are either applied professionally at high dose (office bleaching) or by patient at lower dose (home bleaching). In the present work we studied the effects of a high concentration bleaching agent (35% hydrogen peroxide), and a low concentration bleaching agent (17% carbamide peroxide) on human enamel and dentin using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopic Technique. The OH stretching band of hydroxyapatite at 3567 cm-1 appeared in the spectra of enamel tissue which was absent in dentin. Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide treatment induced some differences in enamel and dentin spectra according to control group spectra. While the treatment of hydrogen peroxide leaded to significant decrease in mineral to matrix ratio, carbamide peroxide treatment did not cause decrease in this level. In addition, organic components of the teeth were changed after the treatment of bleaching agents. The frequency of the Amide A and Amide I bands were significantly changed for enamel tissue after the treatment of high concentration bleaching agent. However, it is observed that these changes result from two different bleaching methods are negligible in dentin tissue. In conclusion it can be stated that hydrogen peroxide treatment caused dramatic changes in enamel structure according to carbamide peroxide treatment, but two methods did not cause significant changes in dentin tissue.


Influence of STRO-1 selection on osteogenic potential of human tooth germ derived mesenchymal stem cells
Ercal, Pinar; Pekozer, Gorke G.; Gumru, Osman Z.; KÖSE, GAMZE; Ramazanoglu, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2017-10-01)
Mesenchymal stem cells derived from the human tooth germ (hTGSCs) are a heterogeneous cell population that can differentiate into osteogenic, neurogenic, and adipogenic lineages. The aim of this study was to compare the osteogenic differentiation capacity of STRO-1 positive (STRO-1 +) hTGSCs and unsorted heterogeneous hTGSCs and to establish if STRO-1 + cells are more committed to osteogenic differentiation. HTGSCs were isolated from impacted third molar tooth germ tissues of adolescents, and a subpopulatio...
Effects of the type and rigidity of the retainer and the number of abutting teeth on stress distribution of telescopic-retained removable partial dentures
Sahin, Volkan; Akaltan, Funda; Parnas, Levend (Elsevier BV, 2012-3)
Background/purpose:Little is known about the force-transmission characteristicsand patterns of telescopic-retained removable partial dentures (RPDs) as related to their typeand rigidity (rigid and/or resilient) and the number of abutting teeth supporting the tele-scopic dentures. In this study, we compared the strain around the abutting teeth and eden-tulous ridges supporting telescopic-retained RPDs with different designs using a straingauge technique.Materials and methods:A maxillary model including four ...
Effects of In-Office and At-Home Bleaching on Human Enamel and Dentin: An in Vitro Application of Fourier Transform Infrared Study
Severcan, Feride; Gokduman, Kurtulus; Dogan, Ayca; BOLAY, ŞÜKRAN; Gokalp, Saadet (2008-11-01)
In-office and at-home bleaching techniques are widely used methods for the whitening of teeth. However, the safety of these techniques has not been clarified yet. The aim of the current study is to investigate the in-office- and at-home-bleaching-induced structural and quantitative changes in human enamel and dentin at the molecular level, under in vitro conditions. The Fourier transform mid-infrared (mid-FT-IR) spectroscopic technique was used to monitor bleaching-induced structural changes. Band frequency...
The effect of diabetes on rat skeletal muscle tissues at molecular level
Bozkurt, Özlem; Severcan, Feride; Department of Biology (2006)
In the present study Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was used to examine the effects of streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus on the structural components of slow- and fast-twitch rat skeletal muscles, at molecular level. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, which is characterized by hyperglycemia caused by a defective or deficient insulin secretory response. The effect of diabetes is seen on a variety of tissues leading to important secondary compl...
Preparation of polyethylene glycol coated magnetic nanoparticles for targeting of cancer cells
Keskin, Tuğba; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biology (2012)
Conventional cancer chemotherapies cannot differentiate between healthy and cancer cells, and lead to severe side effects and systemic toxicity. In the last decades, different kinds of controlled drug delivery systems have been developed to overcome these shortcomings of chemotherapeutics. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) are potentially important in cancer treatment since they can be targeted to tumor site by an externally applied magnetic field. In this study, it is aimed to synthesize folic acid conjugated; ...
