Different Concentrations of Potassium Nitrate in In-office Tooth Bleaching Sensitivity

The aim of this randomized, double-blind controlled clinical study was to evaluate the absolute risk and intensity of sensitivity to dental bleaching in adults on the application of two di...

Effect of Laser and Potassium Nitrate Application on the Sensitivity Control in Bleached Teeth

To investigate the effects of desensitizing agents on the dental bleaching process, testing the hypothesis that they may control dental sensitivity.

Clinical and Radiographic Assessments of Potassium Nitrate in Polycarboxylate Versus Mineral Trioxide Aggregate as Pulpotomy Biomaterials in Immature Mandibular First Permanent Molars

The purpose of this RCT is to compare the clinical/radiographic outcomes of Potassium nitrate in polycarboxylate cement and MTA as pulpotomy biomaterials used for asymptomatic vital immatu...

Potassium Oxalate and Potassium Nitrate and Post-bleaching Sensitivity

Objectives: This study will determine the effectiveness of the use of desensitivity gels prior in office bleaching on risk and intensity of tooth sensitivity caused by in-office bleaching ...

More Precise Estimation of Lower-Level Interaction Effects in Multilevel Models.

In hierarchical data, the effect of a lower-level predictor on a lower-level outcome may often be confounded by an (un)measured upper-level factor. When such confounding is left unaddressed, the effec...

High-Level Prediction Signals in a Low-Level Area of the Macaque Face-Processing Hierarchy.

Theories like predictive coding propose that lower-order brain areas compare their inputs to predictions derived from higher-order representations and signal their deviation as a prediction error. Her...

Potassium Citrate is Better in Reducing Salt and Increasing Urine pH than Oral Intake of Lemonade: A Cross-Over Study.

BACKGROUND Urine solute supersaturation leads to the formation of urinary tract caliceal stones. Many parameters can be involved in the supersaturation of solutes in urine, such as pH. Uric acid has p...

Fabrication of a solution-gated transistor based on valinomycin modified iron oxide nanoparticles decorated zinc oxide nanorods for potassium detection.

There are considerable interests to detect and monitor the abnormal level of minerals in water for avoiding/preventing any toxic effects after consumption. Herein, we report the fabrication of solutio...

The "Mortality Ascent": Hourly Risk of Death for Hemodynamically Unstable Trauma Patients at Level II versus Level I Trauma Centers.

Severely injured trauma patients have higher in-hospital mortality at Level II versus Level I Trauma Centers (TCs). In order to better understand these differences, we sought to determine if there wer...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Moving or bringing something from a lower level to a higher one. The concept encompasses biomechanic stresses resulting from work done in transferring objects from one plane to another as well as the effects of varying techniques of patient handling and transfer.

A chemical system that functions to control the levels of specific ions in solution. When the level of hydrogen ion in solution is controlled the system is called a pH buffer.

The level of governmental organization and function at the national or country-wide level.

A derivative of the NIACINAMIDE that is structurally combined with an organic nitrate. It is a potassium-channel opener that causes vasodilatation of arterioles and large coronary arteries. Its nitrate-like properties produce venous vasodilation through stimulation of guanylate cyclase.

A situation in which the level of living of an individual, family, or group is below the standard of the community. It is often related to a specific income level.
