- Fluoride-containing bioactive glasses: effect of glass design and structure on degradation, pH and apatite formation in simulated body fluidDelia S Brauer
Imperial College London, Department of Materials, Exhibition Road, London SW7 2AZ, UK
Acta Biomater 6:3275-82. 2010..Apatite formation could be favoured by increasing the phosphate content in the glass, as the release of additional phosphate into the SBF would affect supersaturation in the solution and possibly favour formation of apatite...
- Variations in human DEJ scallop size with tooth typeDelia S Brauer
Division of Biomaterials and Bioengineering, Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences, University of California San Francisco, Box 0758, San Francisco, CA 94143 0758, USA
J Dent 38:597-601. 2010..Recent literature suggests that the scalloped structure of the dentino-enamel junction (DEJ) is critical for DEJ stability. Aim of our study was to see if there are differences in scallop size and shape with tooth type...
- Benefits and drawbacks of zinc in glass ionomer bone cementsDelia S Brauer
Unit of Dental Physical Sciences, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS, UK
Biomed Mater 6:045007. 2011..In summary, we demonstrate that while zinc-containing GPCs possess excellent mechanical properties, they fail basic biocompatibility tests, produce an acute cytotoxic response in vitro, which may preclude their use in vivo...
- Nano- and micromechanical properties of dentine: Investigation of differences with tooth sideDelia S Brauer
Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA
J Biomech 44:1626-9. 2011..They also reveal that buccal-lingual ratios of hardness are in opposite directions in crown and root dentine, suggesting compensatory functions...

Adult Oral Health, Institute of Dentistry, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, Turner Street, London E1 2AD, UK
Dent Mater 28:168-78. 2012..Fluoride-containing BG, however, form fluorapatite, which is more stable toward acid attack, and provide a more sustainable option for treating DH...
- Degradable phosphate glass fiber reinforced polymer matrices: mechanical properties and cell responseDelia S Brauer
Department of Materials, Imperial College London, Exhibition Road, London SW7 2AZ, UK
J Mater Sci Mater Med 19:121-7. 2008..Results suggested that these composite materials are biocompatible and show mechanical properties which are of interest for the production of degradable bone fixation devices...
- High phosphate content significantly increases apatite formation of fluoride-containing bioactive glassesMohammed Mneimne
Unit of Dental Physical Sciences, Barts and The London, London, UK
Acta Biomater 7:1827-34. 2011..This study shows that by varying the phosphate content, the reactivity and apatite formation of bioactive glasses can be controlled successfully...
- Predicting the glass transition temperature of bioactive glasses from their molecular chemical compositionRobert G Hill
Unit of Dental Physical Sciences, Institute of Dentistry, Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London E1 4NS, UK
Acta Biomater 7:3601-5. 2011..Although the model suggested by O'Donnell works reasonably well for glasses within the composition range presented, it is oversimplified and fails for glasses outside certain compositional boundaries...
- Fabrication and in vitro characterization of porous biodegradable composites based on phosphate glasses and oligolactide-containing polymer networksDelia S Brauer
