OBJECTIVES Frictional forces play a major role in the oral wear process of dental resin-based composites (RBCs) and it would be of interest to consider how the energy from friction is dissipated at the material surface. Consequently, the micromechanical wear properties of conventional methacrylate compared with novel oxirane RBCs were assessed. METHOD The frictional coefficient (mu), volume loss and Vickers hardness number (VHN) of oxirane (EXL596 and H1) and methacrylate RBCs (Z100 and… CONTINUE READING
