Surface Analysis and Cell Biology Technique in Understanding Degradation of Natural Temporary Teeth Collected from an Area with High Pollution

Abstract:

Article Preview

The aim of this paper is to correlate surface features of degraded temporary teeth from area with high pollution with the cell adhesion and proliferation. Viability of gingival fibroblast (HGF-1, CRL-2014, American Type Culture Collection) was evaluated with a MTT (3-(4,5-dimetiltiazol-2-il)-2,5-difeniltetrazolium bromide ) test and the values are discussed for the most degraded temporary teeth in correlation with the change in surface morphology and hydrophilic/hydrophobic balance, taking into account that cell adhesion is related to a more hydrophilic character.
