Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this study, the apatite-forming ability of the new resin-modified glass-ionomer cement was evaluated by soaking the cement in the simulated body fluid. The Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) patterns of the soaked cement pointed to the creation of poorly crystalline carbonated apatite. It was found that the releasing of calcium ions from the soaked cement will dominate the undesirable effect of polyacrylic acid on apatite formation. Consequently, the ionic activity products (IAPs) of the apatite in the surrounding medium increased which accelerated apatite nucleation induced by the presence of the Si-OH and COOH groups. Accordingly, the apatite nuclei started to form via primary heterogeneous nucleation and continued by secondary nucleation. Therefore, nucleation and growth occurs as in the layer-by-layer mode so that finite numbers of monolayers are produced. Subsequent formation of film occurs by formation of discrete nuclei (layer-plus-island or SK growth).
