Fracture characteristics of fibre reinforced composite bars used to provide rigid orthodontic dental segments.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Fibre reinforced composites (FRC) can be used to join teeth as a rigid unit for anchorage purposes and/or for tooth movement. The utility of FRCs for these applications depends on the fracture characteristics and durability of the material under masticatory loads. AIMS To evaluate the effect of simulated masticatory loads on the fracture… (More)
