Wear of two pit and fissure sealants in contact with primary teeth

Evaluated wear of dental materials used as pit-and-fissure sealants in contact with primary teeth found that the wear rates of primary tooth enamel vary according to the type of material and the load applied during mastication.

Differential wear of teeth and restorative materials: clinical implications.

The wear resistance of newer esthetic restorative materials has generally improved, and the damage caused by several materials to the opposing dentition has been reduced, but the different structures and physical properties of tooth substance and restorative material will eventually lead to varying degrees of differential wear.

Quantitative and Qualitative Assessment of the Wear of Primary EnamelAgainst Three Types of Full Coronal Coverage

The zirconium crowns induced the most severe wear in primary molars, followed by stainless steel crowns, and the least wear was induced by preveneered stainless steel Crowns.

Reinforcement of Unsupported Enamel by Restorative Materials and Dentin Bonding Agents: An In Vitro Study

Bonded amalgam systems (Panavia F) could reinforce the undermined occlusal enamel effectively in molars and compares it with sound dentin.

Research on the Friction and Wear Test between Dental Prosthetic Materials and Natural Teeth

Experimental results showed that zirconia ceramic has a better wear resistance and a lower friction than titanium alloy TC4, and a significant positive correlation between three factors and wear loss was discovered.

Experimental Comparison on Dental BioTribological Pairs Zirconia/Zirconia and Zirconia/Natural Tooth by Using a Reciprocating Tribometer

The results on the wear mass loss show a very low wear rate when coupling in tribological condition natural tooth with a ceramic restoration (a mean value of 0.5 mg was found).



Occlusal wear of teeth and restorative materials. A review of classification, etiology, mechanisms of wear, and some aspects of restorative procedures.

Some guidelines for restorative treatment of patients with extensive occlusal tooth wear are given, with special emphasis on the type of treatment, the vertical dimension of occlusion, the space available, and choice of material for the restorations.

Effect of Contact Area Size on Enamel and Composite Wear

The most severe disintegration of the composite was found in specimens occluding with the smallest enamel contact area, which was related to the chewing pressure, which in turn was governed by the contact area dimension.

Chewing Pressure us. Wear of Composites and Opposing Enamel Cusps

An increase in chewing pressure significantly enhanced the wear of both composite and enamel in all groups except for the antagonists opposing a HMC, which was the most enamel-friendly of the three composites tested.

Abrasion of Human Enamel by Different Dental Ceramics in vitro

Dicor and Dicor coated with a shading porcelain were found to cause the lowest wear of enamel, and Knoop hardness showed poor correlation with the results of the abrasive testing.

The wear effects of selected composites on restorative materials and enamel.

An in vitro investigation into the wear effects of selected restorative materials on dentine.

Dentine is substantially less wear resistant than enamel when compared to previous findings, and great care should be taken with the choice of restorative material when opposing dentine.

Restoring the worn dentition.

The case report described in this article demonstrates the conservative restoration of severe wear due to attrition and erosion of teeth with a strong, durable restoration (that required no anesthesia) with high esthetics.
