The cartilaginous intra-articular disc of the human temporomandibular joint shows clear anteroposterior variations in its morphology. However, anteroposterior variations in its tissue behavior have not been investigated thoroughly. To test the hypothesis that the mechanical properties of fresh human temporomandibular joint discs vary in anteroposterior(More)
PURPOSE This article reviews material properties and application techniques important in minimizing effects of polymerization shrinkage during the curing reaction of resin composite restorative materials used in adhesive dentistry. MATERIALS AND METHODS Relevant scientific publications were critically reviewed. RESULTS Since it was recognized that(More)
OBJECTIVE Three models consisting of springs and dashpots were investigated to describe the viscoelastic behavior of a commercial light-activated restorative composite during curing. METHODS Stress-strain data on Z100 were recorded by means of a dynamic test method performed on a universal testing machine. The model was tested by matching its response to(More)
Shrinkage stresses generated in dental resin composites during curing are among the major problems in adhesive dentistry, because they interfere with the integrity of the restored tooth. The aim of this study was to find a mechanical model to describe the viscoelastic behavior of a two-paste resin composite during curing, to aid our understanding of the(More)
