Photoelasticity as a Research Technique for Analyzing Stresses in Dental Structures
THE primary purpose of the masticatory process is to apply forces to the nutritional substances which are taken into the mouth, thereby causing a reduction in their size. The mechanism for this… Expand

Let them walk! Current prosthesis options for leg and foot amputees.
Volumetric contraction in some tooth-coloured restorative materials.
BACKGROUND Much of the concern about the setting contraction of tooth-coloured restorative materials has been focused on the composite resins. This study investigated setting contraction of a range… Expand
Marginal Fracture of Amalgam Restorations
Marginal fracture characteristics of clinical restorations made from three amalgam alloys were evaluated during a four-year period. Marginal fracture increased with age; the rate of increase was… Expand
Dynamic Creep of Dental Amalgam
The dynamic creep of amalgam was investigated in view of its possible relationship to the clinically observed extrusion of amalgam restorations. It was found that different alloys vary widely in… Expand

T In a previous laboratory study designed to analyze features of Class II amalgam cavity design,l it was found that restorations placed in cavities having inter-proximal axial retention grooves… Expand
The influence of final mercury content on the characteristics of a high-copper amalgam.
In this study, specimens of a high-copper amalgam, prepared at different final Hg contents, were examined in several different experiments. The results showed that as the Hg content is increased, a… Expand
An Explanation for the Hygroscopic Setting Expansion of Dental Gypsum Products
Dental gypsum products when mixed with water and allowed to "set" in air exhibit an expansion of their peripheral boundaries that is known as "normal setting expansion." When additional water is… Expand
