Studies from University of Malaya Add New Findings in the Area of Dentistry (Effect of one-step polishing system on the color stability of nanocomposites)
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- New research on Dentistry is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "This study was to compare the effect of three different one-step polishing systems on the color stability of three different types of nanocomposites after immersion in coffee for one day and seven days and determine which nanocomposite material has the best color stability following polishing with each of the one-step polishing system. The nanocomposites tested were Tetric EvoCeram, Grandio and Herculite Precis."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Malaya, "A total of 120 discs (40/nanocomposite, 8mm x 2mm) were fabricated. Ten specimens for each nanocomposite cured under Mylar strips served as the control. The other specimens were polished with OptraPol, OneGloss and Occlubrush immersed in coffee (Nescafe) up to seven days. Color measurements were made with a spectrophotometer at baseline and after one and seven days. Two way repeated measure ANOVA, two way ANOVA and Bonferroni tests were used for statistical analyses (p
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The color change of nanocomposite resins is affected by the type of composite, polishing procedure and the period of immersion in the staining agent."
