Structural and Dynamical Studies of Acid Mediated Conversion in Amorphous-Calcium-Phosphate Based Dental Composites

October 31, 2014
Fan Zhang, Andrew J. Allen, Lyle E. Levine, Mark D. Vaudin, Drago Skrtic, Joseph M. Antonucci, Kathleen M. Hoffman, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, Jan Ilavsky
Amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) based composites are promising restorative dental materials attributable to ACP's capacity to release calcium and phosphate ions through a complex reaction in which ACP is converted to its crystalline, apatitic form

Analyses of a Cantilever-Beam Based Instrument for Evaluating the Development of Polymerization Stresses

August 9, 2011
Martin Y. Chiang, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, Joy P. Dunkers, Jing Qian, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Gary E. Schumacher, Joseph M. Antonucci
Analytical and finite element analyses have been performed on a cantilever-beam based methodology (tensometer) for evaluating the development of stresses as the concomitant of constrained polymerization shrinkage. A guideline for designing a tensometer

Polymerization Stress Development in Dental Composites: Effect of Cavity Design Factor

March 13, 2009
Joseph M. Antonucci, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, Justin N. O'Donnell, Gary E. Schumacher, Drago Skrtic
Objective: To assess the effect of the cavity design factor (C-factor) on polymerization stress development (PSD) in resin composites. Methods: An experimental resin (BT resin) was prepared, which contained 2,2-bis[p-(2 hydroxy-3 -methacryloxypropoxy

Adhesive bonding to dentin improved by polymerizable cyclodextrin derivatives

January 5, 2009
Rafael L. Bowen, Gary E. Schumacher, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, Kathleen M. Flynn, Charles M. Guttman, Clifton M. Carey
Objectives. Determine bonding characteristics of a hydrophilic monomer formulation containing PCDs (Polymerizable Cyclodextrin Derivatives). The hypothesis was that a formulation containing hydrophilic cross-linking diluent comonomers and PCD molecules

Magnetic Resonance Microscopy of Collagen Mineralization

August 1, 2008
Ingrid E. Chesnick, Jeffrey T. Mason, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, Naomi Eidelman, Kimberlee Potter
A model mineralizing system was subjected to magnetic resonance microscopy (MRM), to investigate how water proton transverse (T2) relaxation times and magnetization transfer ratios (MTRs) can be applied to monitor collagen mineralization. In our model

Wear and Mechanical Properties of Nano-Silica-Fused Whisker Composites

September 28, 2004
Hockin D. Xu, Janet Quinn, Anthony A. Giuseppetti
This study aimed to improve the composite wear resistance via reinforcement using nano-silica-fused whiskers, and to examine the relationships between wear and mechanical properties. Nano-silica particles were fused onto silicon nitride whiskers at 800 C

Three-Body Wear of Dental Resin Composites Reinforced With Silica-Fused Whiskers

March 1, 2004
Hockin D. Xu, Janet Quinn, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, F Eichmiller, Edward E. Parry, Gary E. Schumacher
Objective: Recent studies used silica-fused whiskers to increase the strength and toughness of resin composites. This study investigated the three-body wear of whisker composites. It was hypothesized that the whisker composites would be more wear resistant

Investigations of Electrospray Sample Deposition for Polymer MALDI Mass Spectrometry

February 1, 2004
S D. Hanton, I Z. Hyder, J R. Stets, K G. Owens, William R. Blair, Charles M. Guttman, Anthony A. Giuseppetti
In the interest of more thoroughly understanding the relationship between sample preparation technique and spectra quality produced in Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry, we have investigated details of the Electrospray

Effects of Different Whiskers on the Reinforcement of Dental Resin Composites

July 1, 2003
Hockin D. Xu, Janet Quinn, Douglas T. Smith, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, F Eichmiller
Objective: Whiskers were recently used to reinforce dental composites to extend their use to large stress-bearing restorations. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different types of whiskers on composite properties. It was hypothesized

Effect of Thermal Cycling on Whisker-Reinforced Dental Resin Composites

January 1, 2002
H H. Xu, F Eichmiller, Douglas T. Smith, Gary E. Schumacher, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, Joseph M. Antonucci
The mechanical properties of dental resin composites needs to be improved in order to extend their use to high stress-bearing applications such as crown and bridge restorations. Recent studies used single crystal ceramic whiskers to reinforce dental

Reinforcement of a Self-Setting Calcium Phosphate Cement with Different Fibers

October 1, 2000
Hockin D. Xu, F Eichmiller, Anthony A. Giuseppetti
A water-based calcium phosphate cement (CPC) has been used in a number of medical and dental procedures due to its excellent osteoconductivity and bone replacement capability. However, the low tensile strength of CPC prohibits its use in many unsupported

Edge-Bevel Fracture Resistance of Three Direct-Filling Materials

May 1, 2000
R J. Hoard, F Eichmiller, Edward E. Parry, Anthony A. Giuseppetti
Edge strength is defined in this study as the resistance to fracture of the beveled extension normally located at the cavosurface margin of a dental restoration. The edge strength of direct-filling alloy restorations plays an important role in maintaining

Three-Body Wear of a Hand-Consolidated Silver Alternative to Amalgam

September 1, 1999
Hockin D. Xu, F Eichmiller, Anthony A. Giuseppetti, L K. Ives, Edward E. Parry, Gary E. Schumacher
Recent studies have investigated a mercury-free silver alternative to amalgam, but the silver powders required a relatively high compaction pressure to consolidate. The aim of the present study was to consolidate a precipitated silver powder into a
