Physical and mechanical properties of an experimental dental composite based on a new monomer.

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of a dental composite based on BTDMA, a new dimethacrylate monomer based on BTDA (3,3',4,4'-benzophenone tetracarboxylic dianhydride), and to compare these with the properties of a composite based on commonly used Bis-GMA monomer. METHODS Experimental composites… (More)
