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 ...
Mode of correction is related to treatment timing in Class II patients treated with the mandibular advancement locking unit (MALU) appliance
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-25)
<p><i>Objective</i>: To investigate the proportion of skeletal/dentoalveolar components for correction of Class II malocclusion in relation to the pubertal growth peak (PGP) among patients treated with the mandibular advancement locking unit (MALU) appliance.</p> <p><i>Materials and Methods</i>: We conducted a retrospective study of 27 orthodontic patients (age range: 12–18 years; mean age 14.9 ...
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 ...
Determination of copy number and circularization ratio of Tn916-Tn1545 family of conjugative transposons in oral streptococci by droplet digital PCR
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-06)
<p><I>Background</I>: Tn916 and Tn1545 are paradigms of a large family of related, broad host range, conjugative transposons that are widely distributed in bacteria and contribute to the spread of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs). Variation in the copy number (CN) of Tn916-Tn1545 elements and the circularization ratio (CR) may play an important role in propagation of ARGs carried by these ...
Group 1 ITI Consensus Report: The influence of implant length and design and medications on clinical and patient-reported outcomes
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-17)
<p><i>Objectives</i>: The aim of Working Group 1 was to address the influence of different local (implant length, diameter, and design) and systemic (medications) factors on clinical, radiographic, and patient‐reported outcomes in implant dentistry. Focused questions on (a) short posterior dental implants (≤6 mm), (b) narrow diameter implants, (c) implant design (tapered compared to a non‐tapered ...
