Wear particle release at the interface of dental implant components: Effects of different material combinations. An in vitro study -

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of combining implant and abutment materials on wear and particle release in a dynamical loading setup.

Shear bond strength of resin bonded zirconia and lithium disilicate – effect of surface treatment of ceramics and dentin -

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of ceramic surface pretreatment, effect of resin cement and dentin surface roughness on shear bond strength.

Debonding mechanism of zirconia and lithium disilicate resin cemented to dentin -

To evaluate debonding mechanism of zirconia and lithium disilicate cemented to dentin mimicking what could occur in a clinical setting. A null hypothesis of no difference in tensile bond strength between groups of zirconia and lithium disilicate cemented with resin cements was also tested.

Dental ceramics – Classification and properties -

Different dental ceramics available today including a classification, mechanical properties and a description of processing techniques with emphasis on the zirconia materials.
