  • Bio-Active Nano-Diamond Designer Materials and Dentures: From Design to Application 

    Perchyonok, V. Tamara; Souza, John; Zhang, Shengmiao; Moodley, Desigar; Grobler, Sias (Dentistry, 2015)
    Objective: The present study aims to design functional biomaterials and evaluate performance of nano-diamond: chitosan based bio-active containing PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) materials towards application in treatment ...
  • Insights into chitosan hydrogels on dentine bond strength and cytotoxicity 

    Perchyonok, Tamara; Grobler, Sias Renier; Zhang, Shengmiao; Olivier, Annette; Oberholzer, Theunis (Scientific Research Publishing, 2013)
    Contemporary dental adhesives show favorable im- mediate results in terms of bonding effectiveness. However, the durability of resin-dentin bonds is their major problem. Materials and Methods: Preparation of 3 chitosan-antioxidant ...
  • Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunctions and Bio-Materials: Design, Free Radical Defense and Mechanism In Vitro 

    Perchyonok, V Tamara; Souza, Tatiana; Moodley, Desigar; Basson, Nickolas; Zhang, Shengmiao; Grobler, Sias (EC Dental Science, 2015)
    The aim of this investigation is to evaluate the suitability and flexibility of the bio-active containing designer materials to act as an “in vitro” probe to gain insights into molecular origin of TMJ. The hydroxyapatite/chitosan ...
  • Towards Bio-active Restorative Materials with Copaiba Oil and Oblepicha Oil: In vitro 

    Perchyonok, V. Tamara; Moodley, Desigar; Grobler, Sias; Souza, Tatiana; Augusto de Souza, Joane; Zhang, Shengmiao (J Dent Oral Disord Ther, 2015)
    We developed and evaluated chitosan - fucoidan bio-composites with additional bioactive components of oblepicha oil and copaiba oil for bioactive restorative material as intra-dental and wound healing applications such ...
  • Towards bioactive containing restorative materials: from design to testing in vitro approach 

    Perchyonok, Tamara; Mulder, Riaan; Grobler, Sias Renier; Zhang, Shengmiao (Symbiosis, 2015)
    In any repair of a tooth with permanent restorative materials, the interface is always a sensitive region. The appearance of adhesive materials was a great step forward in dealing with the problems of this region and ...
