Aim: To evaluate and compare the porcelain bond strength of Nickel-Chromium and Cobalt-Chromium alloys. Materials and Methods: The alloy systems used in the study were one proprietary brand each of nickelchromium and cobalt-chromium alloy typeCommendand Lithecast respectively. For the porcelain bond strength study, five test specimens were made each with(More)
BACKGROUND Tobacco has long been identified as one of the most hazardous risk factors detrimental to health. To plan and implement anti-tobacco activities in any community, it is necessary to understand the risk it poses in that setting. We assessed the risk of mortality associated with tobacco use in a rural community of Kerala. METHODS This cohort study(More)
UNLABELLED Determination of condylar inclination is important when restoring the occlusal surfaces of teeth. It is important to know the changing trends in horizontal condylar inclination with age so as to have an idea about the cuspal morphology. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES a) to determine the effect of age changes in horizontal condylar inclination using(More)
In an implant-supported overdenture, the optimal stress distribution on the implants and least denture displacement is desirable. This study compares the load transfer characteristics to the implant and the movement of overdenture among 3 different types of attachments (ball-ring, bar-clip, and magnetic). Stress on the implant surface was measured using the(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertension is one of the most important determinants of death due to vascular damage and is fast emerging as a high burden disease in India. However, its documentation is poor in the country. This study aims to estimate the rate and the causal pattern of mortality in a cohort of people with high blood pressure as compared to normotensives. (More)
Polishing is taken up as an alternative to reglazing after adjustments of glazed ceramic prosthesis. An in vitro study was carried out to evaluate three different ceramic polishing systems and their combinations to identify a method that would achieve surface smoothness superior to the glazed surface. 77 glazed feldspathic porcelain disc surfaces, of(More)
