This study aims determine the wear rates of enamel versus enamel and enamel versus ceramic in human beings in relation to the microstructure of the ceramic material. Specific aims of the study and hypotheses are the following:
1. To characterize the microstructure (fracture toughness, particle size of ceramic, and inter-particle spacing) of three ceramic materials
2. To test the hypothesis that lower fracture toughness of glass and/or crystal phase in ceramics reduce wear damage of enamel.
3. To test the hypothesis that smaller sized crystals reduce wear damage of enamel.
4. To test the hypothesis that larger inter-particle spacing reduces wear damage of enamel.
5. To test the hypothesis that equivalent wear patterns exist in all directions between enamel versus enamel and ceramic versus enamel.
6. To test the hypothesis that bite force does not correlate with wear rates.
7. To test the hypothesis that salivary flow does not correlate with wear rates.
8. To test the hypothesis that a greater amount of wear is not associated with a loss in vertical dimension of occlusion.
9. To test the hypothesis that a greater amount of wear does not correlate with secondary cementum deposition as part of the passive eruption process.
10. To test the hypothesis that maximum wear occurs early and wear rates level off within the first two years.
11. To test the hypothesis that in vitro wear analysis does not correlate with in vivo wear measurements

Methods to reduce the revision rate of total hip arthroplasties (THAs) because of wear-related issues are important to examine, particularly because younger patients have a disproportionat...
Polyethylene wear debris from metal-on-polyethylene articulations are one of the main causes of periprosthetic bone loss and non-infectious loosening in total hip arthroplasty. Ceramic art...
The primary objective of this study is to obtain implant survivorship and clinical outcome data for the commercially available Zimmer® Continuum™ Ceramic-on-Ceramic Bearing System when ...
Computer aided design-computer aided machining (CAD-CAM) ceramic crowns are replacing ceramo-metal ones due to newly developed mechanical properties and esthetics. To obtain knowledge about their inte...
The objective of this study was to test whether or not the load-bearing capacity of occlusal veneers bonded to enamel and made of ceramic or hybrid materials does differ from those of porcelain-fused-...
Ceramic-on-ceramic (CoC) total hip replacements (THR) have a substantially lower wear rate than metal-on-polyethylene (MoP) hips, as shown by hip simulator testing. However, the revision rates of CoC ...
Ceramic based prosthetic materials have been used in dental restorations due to their excellent aesthetic and biocompatibility. However, due to concerns related to their mechanical properties and abra...
Dental composite and ceramic restorative materials are designed to closely mimic the aesthetics and function of natural tooth tissue, and their longevity in the oral environment depends to a large deg...
A type of porcelain used in dental restorations, either jacket crowns or inlays, artificial teeth, or metal-ceramic crowns. It is essentially a mixture of particles of feldspar and quartz, the feldspar melting first and providing a glass matrix for the quartz. Dental porcelain is produced by mixing ceramic powder (a mixture of quartz, kaolin, pigments, opacifiers, a suitable flux, and other substances) with distilled water. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
An implant used to replace one or more of the ear ossicles. They are usually made of plastic, Gelfoam, ceramic, or stainless steel.
Occlusal wear of the surfaces of restorations and surface wear of dentures.
Epithelial cells surrounding the dental papilla and differentiated into three layers: the inner enamel epithelium, consisting of ameloblasts which eventually form the enamel, and the enamel pulp and external enamel epithelium, both of which atrophy and disappear before and upon eruption of the tooth, respectively.
The fusion of ceramics (porcelain) to an alloy of two or more metals for use in restorative and prosthodontic dentistry. Examples of metal alloys employed include cobalt-chromium, gold-palladium, gold-platinum-palladium, and nickel-based alloys.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
