The authors have developed a β-tricalcium-phosphate (β-TCP) powder modified mechano-chemically through the application of a ball-milling process (mβ-TCP). The resulting powder can be used in a calcium-phosphate-cement (CPC). In this study, the effects of the powder-to-liquid ratio (P/L ratio) on the properties of the CPCs were investigated, and an appropriate P/L ratio that would simultaneously improve injectability and strength was clarified. The mβ-TCP cement mixed at a P/L ratio of 2.5 and set in air exhibited sufficient injectability until 20 min after mixing, and strength similar to or higher than that mixed at a P/L ratio of 2...

Three types of bending tests -the 3-point bending test, 4-point bending test and biaxial flexural test- were performed to examine the correlations among the testing methods for dental hard resins (HRs). The results for 5 HRs showed that the bending strengths in descending order were: biaxial flexural strength>3-point bending strength>4-point bending strength. Regression analysis of the test methods indicated that the coefficients of determination were large for all test methods; the largest was for the combination of the 4-point bending test and biaxial flexural tests...

Non-mechanical procedures for removing caries-infected dentin are warranted in dentistry. We previously demonstrated the marked sterilization effect for direct irradiation of low-temperature plasma using dentin model infected with Streptococcus mutans. However it requires 180 s of intraoral plasma irradiation to eliminate bacteria. We alternatively investigated whether plasma-treated water (PTW), i.e., pure water exposed to plasma in an atmosphere, has a same bactericidal activity with the plasma irradiation...
