Secondary caries and microleakage
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-09-28)
Objectives: To critically appraise experimental ex vivo research that has focused on secondary caries, and to offer possible explanations for the seemingly poor correlation to clinical observations. <p>Methods: The literature relating to the etiopathogenesis or prevention of secondary caries gained from experimental ex vivo research was reviewed, with particular emphasis on microleakage and ...
Fracture resistance of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing-generated composite resin-based molar crowns
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-16)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether different fabrication processes, such as the computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) system or the manual build-up technique, affect the fracture resistance of composite resin-based crowns. Lava Ultimate (LU), Estenia C&B (EC&B), and lithium disilicate glass-ceramic IPS e.max press (EMP) were used. Four types of molar crowns were ...
Development and validation of an instrument to assess oral health literacy in Norwegian adult dental patients
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-05)
Objective: To develop and validate an interview instrument to assess oral health literacy in Norwegian adult dental patients. <p/>Materials and methods: The instrument, Adult Health Literacy Instrument for Dentistry (AHLID), was based on an OECD instrument used to assess general literacy in adults. 130 Norwegian adults (mean age 48 years; 57% women) participated. AHLID included a selection of ...
Comparing caries risk profiles between 5- and 10- year-old children with cleft lip and/or palate and non-cleft controls
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-25)
Background: Previous studies have suggested that children with oral clefts may have higher caries prevalence in comparison with non-cleft controls but the relative importance of the potential risk factors is not clear. The aim of this study was to compare the caries risk profiles in a group of cleft lip and/or palate (CL(P)) children with non-cleft controls in the same age using a computerized ...
Fracture resistance of monolithic zirconia molar crowns with reduced thickness
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-01-30)
Objectives. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the relationship between fracture load of monolithic zirconia crowns and axial/occlusal thickness, and to evaluate the fracture resistance of monolithic zirconia crowns with reduced thickness in comparison with that of monolithic lithium disilicate crowns with regular thickness. Materials and methods. Monolithic zirconia crowns (Lava ...
