Pietro Mandracci, Paola Ceruti, Carlo Ricciardi, Federico Mussano and Stefano Carossa a-SiOx Coatings Grown on Dental Materials by PECVD: Compositional Analysis and Preliminary Investigation of Biocompatibility Improvements Chemical Vapor Deposition 16
Protective a-SiOx coatings were grown by PECVD at room temperature on ceramic and resin substrates used in restorative dentistry. An EDX analysis of the materials surfaces was carried out to investigate for the presence of potentially poisonous elements. The interaction of substrates and coatings with cells was also investigated, showing some interesting potential of a-SiOx coatings for the reduction of cytotoxicity in dental materials.
