Comparison of conventional and resin-modified glass-ionomer luting cements in the retention of post-crowns by fatigue loading.

Abstract

Fatigue testing may be used for in vitro evaluation of luting cements, allowing comparison of materials under controlled conditions. It is recognized that glass-ionomer cements are materials which are susceptible to microcracking, even during curing prior to load application, and their failure can be related to crack propagation. The aim of this study was… (More)
