E-Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites in Dental Applications

  title={E-Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites in Dental Applications},
  author={Meng Zhang and Jukka Pekka Matinlinna},
Fiber reinforced composites (FRCs) are more and more widely applied in dentistry to substitute for metallic restorations: periodontal splints, fixed partial dentures, endodontic posts, orthodontic appliances, and some other indirect restorations. In general in FRCs, the fiber reinforcement provides the composite structure with better biomechanical performance due to their superior properties in tension and flexure. Nowadays, the E-glass fiber is most frequently used because of its chemical… CONTINUE READING
