L-Lactic acid (LA)-grafted-gum arabic (GA) graft copolymer [OLLA-g-GA] was prepared by using microwave heating in which the hydrophilic GA was grafted with insitu grown lactic acid oligomer. The grafting at OH and NH groups in GA backbone with oligo-(l-lactic acid) (OLLA) chains proved with the help of FTIR and NMR analyses. The grafted GA was dispersed uniformly in OLLA due to the formation of amphiphile GA backbone grafted with OLLA chains, which is supported by XRD, SEM and TEM analyses. This synthesized OLLA-g-GA graft copolymer showed adhesive characteristics with various substrates such as glass and granite...

INTRODUCTION: Free gingival graft is a procedure that is used to increase keratinized tissue around teeth and edentulous sites for future dental implants. Keratinized tissue is critical for maintainability of surgical site and flap management. Platelet-rich fibrin consists of bioactive and biological components, mainly composed of growth factors. Growth factors attract stem cells to the site of release and stimulate cell proliferation. Moreover, growth factors promote angiogenesis, which accelerates wound healing...

AIMS: The aim of the study was to evaluate the shear bond strength (SBS) of orthodontic brackets after mouth rinsing. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty orthodontically extracted maxillary premolar teeth were used in the present study. Buccal surfaces of all the teeth were bonded with orthodontic bracket. Later, each tooth was embedded into acrylic resin and stored in distilled water. All the teeth were randomly divided into four groups (group I: Artificial saliva, group II: Alcohol mouth rinse- Listerine, group III: Chlorhexidine (CHX) mouth rinse-Hexidine, and group IV: Herbal mouth rinse-Befresh) and stored in each solution for 12 hours...

The development of a simple, robust, and generalizable approach for spatially controlled growth of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) on diverse polymeric substrates is of profound technological significance but remains a major challenge. Here, we reported the use of adhesive bacterial amyloid nanofibers, also known as curli nanofibers (CNFs), major protein components of bacterial biofilms, as universal and chemically/mechanically robust coatings on various polymeric substrates to achieve controlled MOF growth with improved surface coverage up to 100-fold...

The era of the poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) brushes as a universal panacea for resisting non-specific protein adsorption and provide lubrication to surfaces is approaching an end. Intensive efforts to find alternative, more stable polymer-brush systems for the tailoring of biomaterials are underway. In the functionalization of medical devices and implants, in addition to preventing non-specific protein adsorption and cell adhesion, polymer-brush formulations are often required to generate highly lubricious films...

The effects of contamination and cleaning methods on bonding of self-adhesive resin cement to zirconia ceramics were examined. Airborne particle-abraded zirconia (Zpex Smile) specimens were divided into the following four groups: control (con), contaminated with saliva and cleaned with tap water (HS), cleaned with Ivoclean (IC), and cleaned with Multi Etchant (ME). The pretreated specimens were bonded using three self-adhesive resin cements, and tensile bond strengths were measured using a universal testing machine at a crosshead speed of 2 mm/min...

The aim of this study was to evaluate how alumina-blasting pressure affects the bond strength of CAD/CAM resin blocks (CRBs) to bovine dentin using two different types of resin cements. CRB slices were divided into three groups by alumina-blasting pressure, namely, untreated and 0.1 MPa and 0.2 MPa, and further divided into three subgroups by combination of CRBs surface treatment and types of cement: Scotchbond Universal and RelyX ultimate (RXB), Scotchbond Universal and RelyX unicem2 (U2B), ceramic primer and RelyX unicem2 (U2C)...

Tissue engineering scaffold provide an effective alternative for peripheral nerve repair. Nanofibrous nerve conduits fabricated with various synthetic and natural materials have great potential to support nerve regeneration as a bridge between adjacent ends. The physical, chemical and electrical properties of the scaffolds affect the outcome of nerve regeneration and recovery of function. In this paper, a surface modified, electrically conductive, aligned nanofibrous scaffold composed of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), referred to as L-PC_A was fabricated for nerve regeneration...

OBJECTIVES: The amounts of calcium salt of 10-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate (MDP-Ca salt) and dicalcium phosphate dihydride (DCPD) with an amorphous phase produced by the demineralisation of enamel and dentin were determined using commercial MDP-based 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA)-containing and HEMA-free all-in-one adhesives. The effect of the amount of MDP-Ca salt produced on bonding performance to enamel and dentin was then characterized. METHODS: Three types of commercial HEMA-containing adhesives (Scotchbond Universal Adhesive, Clearfil Tri-S Bond ND, Clearfil Tri-S Bond ND Quick), a commercial HEMA-free adhesive (G-Bond Plus) and an experimental HEMA-free adhesive were used...

OBJECTIVE: We determined the amounts of calcium salt of 10-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate (MDP-Ca salt) and dicalcium phosphate dihydride (DCPD) with an amorphous phase developed during the application of commercial MDP-based all-in-one adhesives to enamel and dentin. This is because the demineralization by MDP and following calcium salt formation of MDP may be limited by an ionic bond formation of MDP to hydroxyapaptite in the enamel and dentin and following intermediary layer formation of MDP, since MDP forms a chemically-stable adsorption layer...

OBJECTIVES: The study aims to evaluate the effects of non-thermal atmospheric plasma (NTAP) treatments on dentin wetting and surface free energy (SFE) and compare the effects of NTAP treatment, etch-and-rinse, and self-etch protocols for application of universal adhesives. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Mid-coronal dentin of intact third molars was used to measure contact angles of distilled water, ethylene-glycol, and diiodomethane and calculate SFE following different NTAP preset treatments (feeding gas consisting of pure He, He + 1% O2 , He + 1...

A growing amount of experimental evidence shows that the local elastic field acting on cells governs their spatial organization and polarity in a tissue. Interestingly, experiments on wound healing reveal a universal formation of thick actomyosin bundles around the margins of epithelial gaps. Although the forces involved in this process have been measured, the mechanisms governing cellular alignment and contractile ring formation are still not fully understood. To theoretically investigate this process, we have carried out a self-consistent calculation of the elastic field that is actively generated around a circular gap in a contractile cell monolayer that is adhered to an elastic substrate, taking into account the responsiveness of actomyosin activity to the locally generated stress...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of different surface treatments on the shear bond strength (SBS) of a composite resin to the various resin matrix ceramics (RMC). BACKGROUND: Clinical applications of physical and chemical surface conditioning methods may be required for RMC to optimize the adhesion of additional resin materials. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-nine RMC specimens (6 × 6 × 2 mm) were prepared from a resin nanoceramic (RNC), a polymer-infiltrated hybrid ceramic (PIHC), and a flexible hybrid ceramic (FHC) block with a cutting machine under copious water...
