Research: Fixed Prosthodontics
Influence of post material, post diameter, and substance loss on the fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth: A laboratory studyThe influence of the flexural modulus of prefabricated posts on the fracture resistance of endodontically treated teeth is unclear.
Influence of thermomechanical fatigue on the fracture strength of CAD-CAM-fabricated occlusal veneersWith the development of new computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) restorative dental materials, limited data regarding their survival rate and fracture strength are available when they are used as occlusal veneers. Therefore, these materials should be evaluated under conditions similar to those of the oral environment before being recommended for clinical use.
Bond strength durability of self-adhesive resin cements to zirconia ceramic: An in vitro studyHow contamination, cleaning, and artificial aging affect the bond strength of self-adhesive resin cements to zirconia ceramics is unclear.
Effect of fiber posts on the fracture resistance of maxillary central incisors with Class III restorations: An in vitro studyEndodontically treated teeth with Class III restorations show reduced fracture resistance. The placement of glass fiber posts may affect fracture resistance and should be further evaluated.
Effect of fiber posts on the fracture resistance of endodontically treated anterior teeth with cervical cavities: An in vitro studyHow the placement of fiber posts affects the fracture resistance of endodontically treated maxillary central incisors with cervical cavities is not well documented.
Retention of bonded titanium copings fixed to implant abutmentsConical abutments can be laser welded to the abutment base to compensate for differing implant axes. As laser welding requires expensive equipment, alternative methods for bonding the conical abutment part with the abutment base should be considered.
Effect of ferrule location on the fracture resistance of crowned mandibular premolars: An in vitro studyHow the location of a ferrule affects the fracture resistance of endodontically treated mandibular premolars is unclear.
