(MRC DTP) Are controlled localised degradation of resin composites and remineralisation effective in preventing secondary caries?

With health aging, the demand of tooth filling materials has shown a steady increase with an estimated compound annual growth rate of 5.6% between 2021 and 2027 and the global market size of tooth filling materials was valued at over USD 1.8 billion in 20201. Read more

Quality of life of smokers with periodontal disease: impact of Covid-19 lockdowns
