Photo-irradiated caffeic acid exhibits antimicrobial activity against Streptococcus mutans biofilms via hydroxyl radical formation
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-07-25)
An antimicrobial technique based on photo-oxidation of caffeic acid (CA) has recently been developed, but its effect on biofilm-forming bacteria is unknown. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of photo-irradiated CA against Streptococcus mutans (cariogenic bacteria) biofilm as it relates to hydroxyl radical formation. S. mutans biofilms grown on hydroxyapatite disks were immersed in CA ...
Surface properties of dental zirconia ceramics affected by ultrasonic scaling and low-temperature degradation
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-13)
Zirconia (3Y-TZP) dental prostheses are widely used in clinical dentistry. However, the effect of ultrasonic scaling performed as a part of professional tooth cleaning on 3Y-TZP dental prostheses, especially in conjunction with low-temperature degradation (LTD), has not been fully investigated. The present study aimed to evaluate the influence of ultrasonic scaling and LTD on the surface properties ...
