To quantify microstrain development during axial loading using strain gauge analysis for short implants, varying the type of fixture-abutment joint and thread design.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
An internal hexagon implant (4 × 8 mm) and a plateau design implant (4 × 8 mm) were embedded on the center of 10 polyurethane blocks with dimensions of 190 × 30… (More)
The aim of this study was to assess whether surface treatment improves zirconia-porcelain adhesion. The 3Y-TZP blocks were cut into squares, then polished and sintered. The zirconia surface treatments were performed as follows: no treatment (C); tribochemical silica coating (TBS); glaze application + hydrofluoric acid etching (GA); glaze application +… (More)
