Previous studies on the fit of complete crowns have neglected to assess the internal adaptation of castings prior to cementation. Theoretical arguments and laboratory studies have failed to clarify which is the most desirable finish-line configuration in terms of marginal fit. This study evaluated axial and marginal fit of crowns made for three tooth(More)
Studies reporting the influence of finish-line configuration on the fit of cemented crowns have had conflicting conclusions. This study examined the effect of finish-line configuration on the fit of cemented complete crowns. Three identical tooth preparations were made, each with a different facial finish line: shoulder, shoulder-bevel, and chamber. The(More)
Hydroxyapatite (HA) coating of hard tissue implants is widely employed for its biocompatible and osteoconductive properties as well as its improved mechanical properties. Plasma technology is the principal deposition process for coating HA on bioactive metals for this application. However, thermal decomposition of HA can occur during the plasma deposition(More)
