Effects of resistance form on attachment strength of resin-retained castings.

Abstract

This study evaluated the effects of tooth preparation design on resistance to dislodgment of a resin-bonded fixed partial denture (RBFPD). The variations of tooth preparation tested included axial coverage, retentive grooves, and an occlusal rest. Patterns of the tooth preparation designs were prepared and cast in a base metal alloy. Retainer patterns were… (More)
