Finite element analysis to compare stress distribution of connector of lithia disilicate-reinforced glass-ceramic and zirconia-based fixed partial denture.
Summary of "Finite element analysis to compare stress distribution of connector of lithia disilicate-reinforced glass-ceramic and zirconia-based fixed partial denture."
This study used finite element method to analyze the stress distribution in connector of ceramic-based bilayer structures, in simulation of dental crown-like structures with a functional but weak veneer layer bonded onto a strong core layer. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the stress distribution at veneer/core interface of 2 different core materials [Yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystals (Y-TZP) and lithia disilicate-reinforced glass-ceramic] using three-dimensional finite element analysis. Within the limitations of this study, finite element analysis showed that stress concentrations were located at the veneer/core interface of the connector in Y-TZP core models. The general observation was that compared with Y-TZP, lithia disilicate-reinforced glass-ceramic showed a relatively stable stress value and had a minor effect on the stress concentration susceptibility.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Finite Element Analysis
A computer based method of simulating or analyzing the behavior of structures or components.
Dental Stress Analysis
The description and measurement of the various factors that produce physical stress upon dental restorations, prostheses, or appliances, materials associated with them, or the natural oral structures.
The probability distribution associated with two mutually exclusive outcomes; used to model cumulative incidence rates and prevalence rates. The Bernoulli distribution is a special case of binomial distribution.
Stress Disorders, Traumatic, Acute
A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.
A distribution function used to describe the occurrence of rare events or to describe the sampling distribution of isolated counts in a continuum of time or space.
The longevity of endodontically treated teeth is usually determined by the adequacy of root canal treatments, coronal seal and favourable stress distribution within the remaining tooth tissues. The ai...
PURPOSE: No studies have used stress analysis with finite element analysis (FEA) to determine the causes of and mechanisms underlying rotator cuff tears. Therefore, we performed a biomechanical evalua...
The aim of this study was to evaluate stress distribution in peri-implant bone and to investigate the influence of splinting implants by finite element analysis (FEA) with in vivo loading data. The ma...
PURPOSE: Prosthetic materials and bone present quite different mechanical properties. Consequently, mandible reconstruction with metallic materials (or a mandible condyle implant) modifies the physiol...
