The effect of Esthetic fibers on impact resistance of a conventional heat-cured denture base resin
Dogan, Orhan Murat; Bolayir, Giray; Keskin, Selda; Dogan, Arife; Bek, Bulent; Boztug, Ali (Japanese Society for Dental Materials and Devices, 2007-03-01)
This study was conducted to observe the changes in impact resistance of a denture base resin reinforced with five types of fiber. E-glass, polyester, rayon, nylon 6, and nylon 6/6 fibers were cut into 2, 4, and 6 mm lengths and added into the resin at a concentration of 3% by weight. Five test specimens for each formulation, as well as control specimens without fiber, were prepared using a mold including a V-shaped notch with 55 x 10 x 10 mm dimensions. Impact tests were carried out using a Charpy-type test...
In vitro Comparison of Autoclave Polymerization on the Transverse Strength of Denture Base Resins
Durkan, Rukiye; ÖZEL, MEHMET BİROL; Bagis, Bora; Usanmaz, Ali (Japanese Society for Dental Materials and Devices, 2008-07-01)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of autoclave polymerization on the transverse strength of denture base polymers. To this end, 30 rectangular test specimens were fabricated of two heat-polymerized denture base polymers. The test groups were: (I) control. i.e.. conventional water bath to polymerize result by heat at 100 degrees C for 30 minutes; (II) autoclave polymerization at 60 degrees C for 30 minutes followed by 130 degrees C for 10 minutes; and (III) autoclave polymerization at 60 degr...

The purpose of this study was to compare the cytotoxicity, induced apoptosis and/or necrosis, and apoptotic mechanisms in human periodontal ligament (PDL) fibroblasts treated with four different endodontic materials: White ProRoot mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) (MTA/Dentsply; Tulsa Dental, Memphis, TN), Diaket (ESPE, Seefeld, Germany), Endion (VOCO, Cuxhaven, Germany), and CYMED 8410 (NANO, Kaohsiung, Taiwan). The effects of these four materials on the viability of PDL fibroblasts were determined by MTT (...
Finite element analysis of strength characteristics of various resin based restorative materials in Class V cavities
Yaman, SD; Şahin, Melin; Aydin, C (Wiley, 2003-06-01)
This study investigated the strength characteristics of various composites (Tetric Ceram, Tetric Flow, Prisma AP.H, Synergy Duo Shade, Synergy Compact, and Z 100) and compomers (Compoglass, Compoglass F, Dyract AP, F 2000) that were applied in a Class V cavity of a maxillary central incisor. The study was conducted by using a 3-dimensional finite element approach and in the study ansys package program was used. The tooth model had 294 elements and 420 nodes. The teeth considered were assumed to be subjected...
Characterization of primary and permanent teeth using terahertz spectroscopy
KAMBUROĞLU, KIVANÇ; Yetimoglu, N. O.; Altan, Hakan (British Institute of Radiology, 2014-07-01)
Objectives: To analyse teeth samples by using terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) system that was developed in the laboratory to measure the properties of sliced teeth sections in transmission mode.
