OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine flexural properties of unidirectional E-glass fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) with polymer matrices of different water sorption properties. METHODS Rhombic polymer and FRC test specimens made of three commercially available diacrylate resin (Sinfony Activator, Triad Gel, 3M Scotchbond Adhesive) and(More)
PURPOSE Polymers used in interim fixed partial dentures (FPD) have recently been reinforced with fibers. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of the position of the fiber reinforcement on the fracture resistance of interim FPDs. In addition, the influence of quantity of fibers and the length of span of the FPD on the fracture resistance was(More)
The purpose of this practice-based study was to compare the clinical performance of a new universal composite resin material (Z250) used for Class III and V cavities in anterior teeth. Restorative materials (Z250 and Z100; 3 M ESPE) placed by six operators were used for a total of 150 restorations during the 6-month enrollment period. After 1 year, 141(More)
