Lead Molecule K-18: FDA 510(k) Clearance for Antimicrobial Dental Retainer

An antimicrobial and antifungal cationic quaternary ammonium methacryloxy silicate molecule (QAMS) has been synthesized by sol-gel reaction between a tetraalkoxysilane and two trialkoxysilanes. Containing a methacryloxy functional group and a long C-18 carbon chain, the QAMS molecule is soluble in MMA monomer and has been incorporated into PMMA orthodontic acrylic resin.

The QAMS-copolymerised acrylic resin demonstrated improved fracture toughness without adversely affecting flexural modulus and strength of the orthodontic acrylic. In previous in vitro studies, orthodontic acrylic resins containing 4–6% QAMS were found to possess in vitro immediate diffusional as well as contact-killing antimicrobial properties when tested with Streptococcus mutans, Actinomyces naeslundii and Candida albicans.  -Dr. Franklin P. Tay
