Vasodilation refers to the widening of blood vessels resulting from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, particularly in the large arteries, smaller arterioles and large veins....
BATON ROUGE – Chemists created a nonpermanent adhesive from a natural chemical reaction that can be used in the biomedical field. This discovery may benefit tissue repair or drug delivery. The scien...
The adhesive makes the labelling of tubes, bottles and ampoules with small diameters considerably safer
Oftentimes the integrity of a medical device depends on the integrity of the adhesive used to bond its components.
While the summer heat may be a pain, does it actually cause headaches? A Baylor College of Medicine expert says headaches that seem to be caused by the heat might actually be due to dehydration.
Researchers studying chemical reactions in urine have created an adhesive gel for drug delivery applications that they say is cheaper and easier to make than hydrogel-based carriers.
Some adhesives may soon have a metallic sheen and be particularly easy to unstick. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart are suggesting gallium as just such a re...
Even use of epidermal sutures is not superior to that of adhesive alone, when undermining and deep sutures are used, even in a high-tension anatomic area.
(Medical University of South Carolina) A new dental adhesive, which incorporates particles of copper iodide that curtail infections, could extend long-term bond strength when compared to typical adhes...
Stability and retention of the denture becomes at stake with the increase in weight of the denture prosthesis. As a consequence, different materials and methods have been introduced to overcome these ...
Candida-induced denture stomatitis is a common debilitating problem among denture wearers. Previously, we described the fabrication of a new denture material that released antifungal drugs when immers...
Regular cleaning of dentures is essential to the oral and general health of denture wearers. Only limited systematic data are available on the recommendations that dental health care professionals (DH...
Appropriate oral hygiene is required to maintain oral health in denture wearers. This study aims to compare the role of denture cleaning methods in combination with overnight storage conditions on bio...
To evaluate the wear resistance of nano-hybrid composite denture teeth as compared to two commonly used denture teeth: interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) and double crosslinking polymethylmethacry...
