  • Fissure Caries Inhibition Study With Solea CO2-9.3μm Short-pulsed Laser

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The objective of this clinical study is to evaluate whether the use of the new CO2 - 9.3μm short-pulsed laser increases the caries resistance of occlusal pit and fissure surfaces in patients in addition to fluoride therapy. This will be quantified by visual exams with the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS II), SOPROLIFE daylight and blue fluorescence, and DIAGNOdent Laser Light-induced Fluorescence. This is a randomized, single blind, prospective, split mouth controlled, clinical trial over 12 months.

  • Nobio Clinical Study

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    Nobio has developed dental restorative materials with long term antibacterial properties in order to fight recurrent decay/caries around restorations. These composites with incorporated non-leaching antibacterial agents might overcome the vicious circle of newly developed cavities around freshly placed fillings. The investigators will ask lower partial denture wearers to allow them to place a "gap model" with the Nobio-composite and enamel slab in one denture flange. In the other denture flange a gap model with a standard composite will be placed as control. In the laboratory the investigators will test with established methods for demineralization/caries prevention in the test and control enamel slabs, respectively.
