Rochette described the perforated cast metal bonded design for splinting periodontally compromised teeth. The design was later used for replacing missing teeth. The main causes of failure of the perforated (Rochette) type design were attributed to inappropriate case selection and erosion of the composite from perforations. The aim of this study was to analyse the effect of stress magnitude and direction on failure of perforated resin bonded bridges (RBBs). The objective was to compare stress… CONTINUE READING
