OBJECTIVES Differences in mechanical properties between adherents and adhesive result in stress singularity at the free edge for tensile test specimens. Beyond causing premature failures, these also trigger fracture initiation at the bond edge, where the use of the maximum stress at failure as a measure of strength is not a reliable parameter for obtaining(More)
AIM To assess the three dimensional (3D) surface accuracy of a phantom's face acquired from a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan and to determine the reliability of selected cephalometric measurements performed with Maxilim software (Medicim N.V., Mechelen, Belgium). MATERIAL AND METHODS A mannequin head was imaged with a CBCT (I-CAT, Imaging(More)
Considering biomechanics of oral implants, both loading on the implant itself and the transferred load to the bone need our attention. Mastication induces vertical and transverse forces, which induce axial forces and bending moments and exert stress gradients in the implant as well as in the bone. By the use of strain gauges or piezo-electric force(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of reaming on bone volume and surface area of the glenoid is not precisely known. We hypothesize that (1) convex reamers create a larger surface area than flat reamers, (2) flat reamers cause less bone loss than convex reamers, and (3) the amount of bone loss increases with the amount of version correction. METHODS Reaming procedures(More)
