Fiber- Reinforced Composite for Orthodontic Anchorage Technique
Introduction: In orthodontic treatment, adequate anchorage is necessary to move the intended teeth. In some cases, just anterior teeth are malaligned, while posterior occlusion is acceptable. Therefore, the posterior teeth could be integrated by fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) to provide a rigid anchorage. This method proved advantageous since brackets are bonded just to anterior segment, while posterior segments remain intact. Case description: The current article presents the orthodontic treatment of an adolescent girl with malalignment and rotation of upper incisors and canines. Posterior occlusion was admissible. Pos...

Effects of root canal irrigants and medicaments on dentin and vice versa: a review
Microorganisms are very important in the initiation and perpetuation of pulpal and periapical infections. Due to the complex anatomy of the root canal system, mechanical instrumentation of the root canal system should be supplemented with proper root canal irrigants and medicaments. It has been revealed that due to the interactions of root canal irrigants and medicaments with dentin and contents of the root canal system, the antimicrobial effect of root canal irrigants and medicaments in root canal system (ex vivo) are different from that in vitro. Furthermore, root canal irrigants may decrease the fracture resistance of d...

Corrosion of Ni-Ti Rotary Instruments: A Review
The nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) alloys used in endodontics contain 56% Ni and 44% Ti. The 2 unique features related to clinical dentistry (i.e., shape memory effect and superelasticity) are due to the transition from austenite to martensite in Ni-Ti alloy. When a superelastic Ni-Ti alloy undergoes a low tensile loading, normal elastic behavior occurs. In fact, at higher tensile loads, the elastic stress may reach a level at which there is extended horizontal region of elastic strain. The shape-memory property of Ni-Ti is derived from an atomic arrangement different from that of alloys like stainless steel. The purpose of this ...
