Microhardness and Bleaching Effectiveness on Human Tooth Enamel After The Application of Nano hydroxyapatite

Razia Adam
Modern age aesthetic dentistry aims to improve patients’ smiles with minimally invasive procedures (M. Sulieman et al.2004).In- office bleaching is performed using a relatively high concentration of bleaching agents e.g. 25- 30% hydrogen peroxide for a short period of time. Supervised home bleaching involves the fabrication of night guards delivered with a lower bleaching agent concentration for at least two
weeks. Mass market products can be found over the counter and they are provided in...

AN IN VITRO STUDY ON THE EFFECT OF ORGANIC DERIVED NANO HYDROXYAPATITE ON DENTINE PERMEABILITY.

Razia Adam
Dentine Hypersensitivity (DH) is a common symptom that patients present at a dental practice report to have a short sharp painful reaction in response to thermal, evaporative, tactile, osmotic, or chemical stimuli. Various methods have been but not limited to use of calcium carbonate, topical fluoride application and current use of hydroxyapatite containing dentifrices (Hiller et al 2018).Onwubu et al ( 2020) showed the remineralization effect of nano hydroxyapatite and its use in the management...

Adaptation of the Texas Christian University Organisational Readiness for Change Short Form (TCU-ORC-SF) for use in primary health facilities in South Africa

Objectives: The Texas Christian University Organisational Readiness for Change Scale (TCU-ORC) assesses factors influencing adoption of evidence-based practices. It has not been validated in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). This study assessed its psychometric properties in a South African setting with the aim of adapting it into a shorter measure. Methods: This study was conducted in 24 South African primary health care clinics in the Western Cape Province. The TCU-ORC and two other measures, the...
