STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The marginal adaptation of metal ceramic crowns is affected by firing cycles for veneering porcelain application. The effect of multiple firings on the marginal integrity of pressable ceramic core crowns is unknown. PURPOSE The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect of repeated firing cycles on the marginal(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The transverse horizontal mandibular axis point may be located most precisely by a kinematic process. However, an anatomical method of locating the axis is also an acceptable technique, and an easily determined point that is consistently close to the kinematic axis would simplify transfer of the arc of rotation from the patient to the(More)
PURPOSE The debonding load of heat-activated polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) denture base resin material to a nickel-chromium-beryllium (Ni-Cr-Be) alloy conditioned by three different surface treatments and utilizing two different commercial bonding systems was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Denture resin (Lucitone-199) was bonded to Ni-Cr-Be alloy(More)
