Reinforce the structural and morphological properties of dental filler using polymer basedgraphenenanosheets.

Mohanad Abdul Salam, Ehssan Al-Bermany


One of the most important objectives of esthetic restorative dentistry is to provide restorations with structure properties that are comparable to those of natural teeth. Polymer-basedgraphenenanocomposites significantly impact dental fillerstructure. Graphene oxide (GO) and poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) were used to reinforce commercial hybriddental filling. Developed solution and casting methods were applied to fabricate dental filler-based-polymer-basedgraphene nanocomposites. The structureand morphology ofthe fabricated filling-PMMA/GO nanocomposites were investigated. Fourier transform infrared showed a significant interaction between the filling and the additional materials. An Optical microscope with field emission scanning electron microscopy images demonstrated a considerable change in the morphology of the samples with a homogeneous and fine dispersion of the nanomaterials in the dental filler matrix.


GO nanosheets, PMMA, the structural properties.
