MADRID, Spain: The phase-down of amalgam is currently taking place, and many dental practitioners are still seeking a viable alternative. In this regard, the glass hybrids EQUIA Forte and EQUIA Forte HT from GC Corp. have many advantages to offer. To share the latest insights into the technology of these materials, GC Europe organised a symposium during the Oral Health Research Congress presented by the Continental European Division and Scandinavian Division of the International Association for Dental Research, held in Madrid from 19 to 21 September.
LONDON, U.K./ATLANTA, U.S.: After examining tooth renewal in animals that have tooth replacement and regenerative abilities, researchers from the U.K. and the U.S. identified similarities between the teeth and taste buds of a fish. The results suggest that the fish’s oral organs are able to regenerate tissue and can be manipulated to express the characteristics of different tissue types, under the regulation of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling pathway.
