The aim of the current investigation is to evaluate optimal pontic and retainer fiber positions for Polyethylene fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) restorations. In series I notch disc specimens were used to mimic loading cuspal regions of pontics. Four groups (n=15/group; codes A to D) were prepared from Artglass composite. Groups A to C were reinforced with(More)
This study investigated the effect of air inlet ring opening on the oscillatory pattern of the MM 1500 sonic handpiece and files. The oscillatory pattern of the driver head and files in air and under load was determined microscopically. The results showed that a critical opening of the air inlet ring was necessary to elicit oscillation of the driver head(More)
The aim of this study was to develop a model system to demonstrate the pattern of load and how much is applied. A lower molar was mounted on a beam and attached to a mandibular phantom head jaw. A strain gauge fitted to the beam allowed loading of the molar to be recorded, during root canal preparation. Ten operators were asked to instrument the distal root(More)
