Effect of sandblasting on the long-term performance of dental ceramics.
A study has been made of the effects of sandblasting on the strength of Y-TZP and alumina ceramic layers joined to polymeric substrates and loaded at the top surfaces by a spherical indenter, inExpand

Risk factors for osteonecrosis of the jaws: a case-control study from the CONDOR Dental PBRN.
Case reports and cohort studies have linked bisphosphonate therapy and osteonecrosis of the jaws (ONJ), but neither causality nor specific risks for lesion development have been clearly established.Expand

Performance of Dental Ceramics: Challenges for Improvements
The clinical success of modern dental ceramics depends on an array of factors, ranging from initial physical properties of the material itself, to the fabrication and clinical procedures that inevitably damage these brittle materials, and the oral environment. Expand

Use of contact testing in the characterization and design of all-ceramic crownlike layer structures: a review.
Ceramic-based crowns, particularly molar crowns, can fail prematurely from accumulation of fracture and other damage in continual occlusal contact. Damage modes depend on ceramic types (especiallyExpand
