Polished sections of human teeth and 11 Russian and foreign restoration materials (silver amalgam, cements, and polymer-based materials) were studied with an MTI-3M microhardness meter. Microhardness immediately under loaded diamond indentor of the device, elastic and plastic deformations were evaluated. Dental enamel is characterized by the greatest microhardness. Inorganic filler essentially (3-fold) increases the microhardness of polymer-based material. Microhardness of dental tissues and… CONTINUE READING
