    2. Near-IR and CP-OCT imaging of suspected occlusal caries lesions

      Near-IR and CP-OCT imaging of suspected occlusal caries lesions
      Introduction Radiographic methods have poor sensitivity for occlusal lesions and by the time the lesions are radiolucent they have typically progressed deep into the dentin. New more sensitive imaging methods are needed to detect occlusal lesions. In this study, cross-polarization optical coherence tomography (CP-OCT) and near-IR imaging were used to image questionable occlusal lesions (QOC's) that were not visible on radiographs but had been scheduled for restoration on 30 ...

    3. Activity assessment of root caries lesions with thermal and near-IR imaging methods

      Activity assessment of root caries lesions with thermal and near-IR imaging methods
      The purpose of this study was to evaluate thermal and near-infrared (NIR) reflectance imaging methods for the assessment of the activity of root caries lesions. In addition, changes in the lesion structure were monitored with polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT). Artificial bovine and natural root caries lesions were imaged with PS-OCT, and their dehydration rate was measured with thermal and NIR cameras. The lesion activity of the natural root ...

    4. Clinical monitoring of smooth surface enamel lesions using CP-OCT during nonsurgical intervention

      Clinical monitoring of smooth surface enamel lesions using CP-OCT during nonsurgical intervention
      Introduction Studies have shown that cross-polarization optical coherence tomography (CP-OCT) can be used to image the internal structure of carious lesions in vivo . The objective of this study was to show that CP-OCT can be used to monitor changes in the internal structure of early active carious lesions on smooth surfaces during non-surgical intervention with fluoride. Methods Lesions on the smooth surfaces of teeth were imaged using CP-OCT on 17 ...

    5. Near-infrared imaging of secondary caries lesions around composite restorations at wavelengths from 1300–1700-nm

      Near-infrared imaging of secondary caries lesions around composite restorations at wavelengths from 1300–1700-nm
      Background and objectives Current clinical methods for diagnosing secondary caries are unreliable for identifying the early stages of decay around restorative materials. The objective of this study was to access the integrity of restoration margins in natural teeth using near-infrared (NIR) reflectance and transillumination images at wavelengths between 1300 and 1700-nm and to determine the optimal NIR wavelengths for discriminating composite materials from dental hard tissues. Materials and methods Twelve ...

    6. Longitudinal monitoring of demineralization peripheral to orthodontic brackets using cross polarization optical coherence tomography

      Longitudinal monitoring of demineralization peripheral to orthodontic brackets using cross polarization optical coherence tomography
      Objectives The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that cross-polarization optical coherence tomography (CP-OCT) can be used to longitudinally monitor demineralization peripheral to orthodontic brackets in an extended clinical study. Methods A high-speed CP-OCT system was used to acquire 3D volumetric images of the area at the base of orthodontic brackets over a period of 12-months after placement. The reflectivity was measured at 3-month intervals for 12-months ...

    7. Non-destructive clinical assessment of occlusal caries lesions using near-IR imaging methods

      Non-destructive clinical assessment of occlusal caries lesions using near-IR imaging methods
      Objective Enamel is highly transparent in the near-IR (NIR) at wavelengths near 1,300nm, and stains are not visible. The purpose of this study was to use NIR transillumination and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to estimate the severity of caries lesions on occlusal surfaces both in vivo and on extracted teeth. Methods Extracted molars with suspected occlusal lesions were examined with OCT and polarization sensitive OCT (PS-OCT), and subsequently sectioned ...

    8. Clinical assessment of early tooth demineralization using polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography

      Clinical assessment of early tooth demineralization using polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography
      Introduction The aims of this study were to test the hypothesis that polarization sensitive-optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) can be used to non-destructively measure and quantify the severity of the early demineralization of enamel on buccal and occlusal surfaces and assess the inhibitory effect of fluoride varnish in vivo. Methods A split mouth design was used to assess the effects of fluoride varnish on inhibiting dissolution on 20 test subjects. Orthodontic ...

  2. About Michal Staninec

    Michal Staninec

    Michal Staninec received a BA in biochemistry from UC Berkeley in 1974, his DDS from UCSF in 1980, then spent one year in Japan as a researcher in dental materials and operative dentistry. Since 1982 he has been a teaching restorative dentistry at UCSF on a half time basis, while maintaining a private practice in San Francisco. He is currently Clinical Professor in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences. In 1999 he received his PhD in Medical Sciences with a thesis in restorative dentistry from the University of Nijmegen in Holland. He has authored and co-authored 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals and lectured on restorative dentistry in the US, Japan and Europe. His research interests include dental adhesion, conservative restorative techniques, clinical testing of adhesive techniques, secondary caries, laser interactions with dental hard tissues, and effects of fatigue on dentin. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Dental Materials, Academy of Dentistry International, and past president of the Dental Materials Group Chapter of the American Association for Dental Research.
