Chewing pressure vs. wear of composites and opposing enamel cusps.


The effects of various chewing pressures on the wear of composites and enamel were assessed in vitro. Standardized composite discs (8 mm in diameter, 2 mm in height) were made of a fine-particle hybrid (FPH), a coarse-particle hybrid (CPH), and a homogeneous microfilled composite (HMC). The composite specimens were chemically degraded by immersion in 75… (More)
