Fluoride containing bioactive glass composite for orthodontic adhesives - Apatite formation properties.
OBJECTIVES: Dental materials that can form apatite offer the potential to not only prevent demineralisation but enhance remineralisation of the enamel. The objective of this study was to investigate the ability of a novel ...
Development of a novel bioactive glass for air-abrasion to selectively remove orthodontic adhesives.
OBJECTIVES: To develop a novel, bioactive glass for removing residual orthodontic adhesive via air-abrasion, following bracket debonding, and to evaluate its effectiveness against a proprietary bioactive glass 45S5(Sylc™ ...
Bioactive glass composite for orthodontic adhesives - Formation and characterisation of apatites using MAS-NMR and SEM.
OBJECTIVES: To study the dissolution and fluoroapatite (FAP) formation of a new bioactive glass (BAG)-resin adhesive in an acidic solution in reference to neutral solutions, using the magic angle spinning-nuclear magnetic ...
Sodium Is Not Essential for High Bioactivity of Glasses.
This study aims to demonstrate that excellent bioactivity of glass can be achieved without the presence of an alkali metal component in glass composition. In vitro bioactivity of two sodium-free glasses based on the ...
