Zirconia (ZrO2) based dental ceramics have been considered to be advantageous materials with adequate mechanical properties for the manufacturing of medical devices. Due to its very high compression strength of 2000 MPa, ZrO2 can resist differing mechanical environments. During the crack propagation on the application of stress on the surface of ZrO2, a crystalline modification diminishes the propagation of cracks. In addition, zirconia's biocompatibility has been studied in vivo, leading to the observation of no adverse response upon the insertion of ZrO2 samples into the bone or muscle...

Calcium phosphate materials (CPM) are widely used in dentistry and maxillofacial surgery. The presence of microbial biofilms and external infections are responsible for the failure of many procedures of dental implants and bone grafts. In an attempt to reduce the percentage of these infectious processes antibiotics have been associated with CPM improving certain conditions. For instance antibiotics administered orally or intravenously have less effect and the blood flow in relation to this is poor near implants and grafts...

OBJECTIVE: Bioactive glasses (BAG) form, in contrast to formerly used implant materials, a stable bond with tissues, especially bone, when implanted. Nowadays BAGs are often mixed with a cement/composite that hardens in situ to broaden its applications in dentistry or orthopedics. The bioactivity and biocompatibility of possible BAG candidates for BAG-cement/composite development were evaluated. METHODS: Two fluoride containing BAGs were tested: a Na(+)-containing (45S5F), based on the first commercial BAG, and a Na(+)-free BAG (CF9), with a higher Ca(2+) and PO4(3-) content...

Infections due to biofilm-producing microorganisms are one of the main causes for the failure of dental implants. Increasing efforts have been made in order to develop new strategies to prevent biofilm formation. In this study, the biofilm development on a newly designed laser-modified titanium implant surface was evaluated and compared to that on conventional sandblasted titanium used in implant dentistry. The amount of biofilm produced by Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Porphyromonas gingivalis isolated from peri-implantitis was assessed by a semi-quantitative spectrophotometric method and by confocal laser scanning microscopy...

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a consecrated biomaterial for bone reconstruction. In the form of thin films deposited by pulsed laser technologies, it can be used to cover metallic implants aiming to increase biocompatibility and osseointegration rate. HA of animal origin (bovine, BHA) reinforced with MgF2 (2wt.%) or MgO (5wt.%) were used for deposition of thin coatings with improved adherence, biocompatibility and antimicrobial activity. For pulsed laser deposition experiments, a KrF* (λ=248nm, τFWHM≤25ns) excimer laser source was used...

With the growing use of dental implants, the incidence of implants' failures grows. Late treatment complications, after reaching full osseointegration and functionality, include mechanical failures, such as fracture of the implant and its components. Those complications are deemed severe in dentistry, albeit being usually considered as rare, and therefore seldom addressed in the clinical literature. The introduction of dental implants into clinical practice fostered a wealth of research on their biological aspects...

Repair of dental pulp and periodontal lesions remains a major clinical challenge. Classical dental treatments require the use of specialised tissue-adapted materials with still questionable efficacy and durability. Stem cell-based therapeutic approaches could offer an attractive alternative in dentistry since they can promise physiologically improved structural and functional outcomes. These therapies necessitate a sufficient number of specific stem cell populations for implantation. Dental mesenchymal stem cells can be easily isolated and are amenable to in vitro expansion while retaining their stemness...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The importance of bacterial biofilm in the human body, both when associated in chronic infections and as the default mode of microbial growth in the normal flora, has been understood during the last two decades. The word biofilm has recently entered into clinical vocabulary especially in dentistry, and oral hygienists have begun to talk of oral or dental biofilm instead of oral plaque. Biofilm presence has been demonstrated widely in otorhinolaryngology, related to chronic infections of middle ear, paranasal sinuses and lymphoid tissue of adenoids and tonsils and to implanted materials; however, less literature exists considering the implication of biofilm to laryngeal infections or head and neck cancer...

OBJECTIVES: The high-performance thermoplastic polymer PEEK (poly-ether-ether-ketone) is used as alternative implant material to metals since 1998 in many medical fields due to its bone-like mechanical properties. These iso-elastic characteristics of PEEK lead to the assumption, that it could represent a viable alternative to conventional materials also in the field of dentistry. Therefore the mechanical properties of different PEEK-compounds should be eavuated vie the three-point bending test...

An appropriate interaction between implanted materials and the surrounding tissue is essential for successful implantation. Titanium (Ti) and some of its alloys have been used in dentistry and orthopedics as a substitutive material for hard tissue, such as teeth or natural bone. Nevertheless, metal ions released from titanium and alloy implants have adverse biological effects on biological tissues or cells. Secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI) promotes cell migration, proliferation and wound healing...
