The use of non-metal clasp denture (NMCD) materials may seriously affect the remaining tissues because of the low rigidity of NMCD materials such as polyamides. The purpose of this study was to develop a high-rigidity glass fiber-reinforced thermoplastic (GFRTP) composed of E-glass fiber and polyamide-6 for NMCDs using an injection molding. The reinforcing(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this article is to review the mechanical requirements of the tissue-implant interface and analyze related theories. STUDY SELECTION The osseointegration capacity of titanium implants has been investigated over the past 50 years. We considered the ultimate goal of osseointegration to which form a desirable interfacial layer and a(More)
