PURPOSE: Wearing contact lens requires awareness about possible contaminants, the causative agents of multiple complications. The present study focused on identification of potential pathogens and presence of virulence associated markers in contact lens associated bacteria. METHODS: Bacterial contaminants were isolated from contact lenses or cleaning solutions collected from University students. Isolates were identified using conventional methods followed by 16S rRNA gene sequencing and screened for the presence of virulence factors which included capsular presence, adhesion, serum resistance, iron chelation, haemagglutination and hemolysis...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ethanol on the bond longevity of a universal adhesive system to bovine dentin, under different modes of adhesive application and artificial aging. Bovine dentin was exposed, and the smear layer was standardized by sandpaper polishing. Specimens were randomly divided into 2 groups: ethanol (E) and non-ethanol (N). Groups were subdivided according to adhesive mode of application into etch-and-rinse (Er) and self-etching (S). Resin blocks were built onto the treated surface, and the specimens were stored in deionized water at 37°C for 48 h...

OBJECTIVE: The aims were to evaluate, via multi-year student cohorts: (i) the incidence of pre-test failures and (ii) shear bond strengths of single- and multi-step adhesives to bovine dentin. METHODS: The experiments were performed by cohorts of dental students (2008-2016). Each year the bond strengths of three dental adhesives to bovine dentin were tested. Four self-etching adhesives (Optibond-All-in-One, [OBAIO]; Optibond XTR [OBXTR]); Xeno V [XV]; Xeno V+ [XV+]; a three-step etch-and-rinse-system (Optibond FL, [OBFL]), a self-etch universal adhesive (Scotchbond Universal [SBU]) and a self-etch/etch-and-rinse adhesive (Xeno Select, [XS]) were included in the study...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of multimode MDP-based primers and different application protocols on the bond strength of a representative resin cement to an yttrium stabilized tetragonal zirconia (Y-TZP) ceramic. Materials and Methods: The occlusal dentin from 60 human molars was exposed. The teeth and zirconia cylinders (N = 60) (3 mm of diameter; 4 mm of height) were divided into six groups (n = 10) according to the ceramic surface conditioning: (1) air abraded with SiO2 particles; (2) Z-Prime Plus; (3) air abraded with SiO2 particles + Z-Prime Plus; (4) air abraded with SiO2 particles + All-Bond Universal; (5) air abraded with SiO2 particles + ScotchBond Universal Adhesive; and (6) untreated zirconia...

This in vitro study aimed to evaluate the effect of two different polymer-based CAD/CAM materials; resin-nano ceramic (Lava Ultimate [LVU]) and composite (CERASMART [CS]), their different surface pre-treatments, and use of different resin cements on the µTBS of adhesively bonded CAD/CAM onlays to dentin. CAD/CAM materials were cut into slabs and divided into five groups according to the surface pre-treatments applied: Silane Primer, OptiBond XTR adhesive, Silane Primer+OptiBond XTR adhesive, Single Bond Universal (SBU), and RelyX Ceramic Primer+SBU...

BACKGROUND: One of the potential advantages of laparoscopic abdominal surgery is in reducing the development of adhesions, making later surgery easier. The purpose of this study is to determine whether using the laparoscopic versus open approach for a rectal resection with a diverting ileostomy affects the speed and safety of subsequent ileostomy reversal. METHODS: This is a retrospective study using patients who underwent ileostomy reversal following a rectal cancer resection with curative intent with a diverting ileostomy at the University Hospital Geelong between January 2006 and June 2017...

Introduction: Heat cure acrylic resins are the most commonly used denture base materials. The important limitation is they may act as reservoir of microorganisms. The adherence of microorganisms can be reduced by chemical modification of the surface charge of denture base resin. Incorporation of methacrylic acid (MA) in the denture base resin gives a negative surface charge. A denture base having a negative surface charge may hinder the initial adhesion of microorganisms through repulsive electrostatic forces...

Background: Self-adhering flowable composite (SAFC) minimized the time-consuming application procedures encountered with the traditional adhesive systems and restorative materials. Self-adhering composite combines the merits of both adhesive and restorative material technologies (8th generation) in a single product, bringing new horizons, and ambitions to restorative procedures. Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical performance of SAFC compared to conventional flowable composite in conservative Class I cavities...

OBJECTIVES: Dentin biomodification using collagen cross-linkers has been proposed as one of the strategies to improve bond durability of adhesives to dentin. However, literature is not very consistent regarding their benefit, in particular when cross-linkers are applied in clinically realistic application times. This study investigated the effect of three cross-linkers on the mini-interfacial fracture toughness (mini-iFT) of four adhesives bonded to dentin following either etch&rinse (E&R) or self-etch (SE) modes...
