Daratsianos, Nikolaos; Jäger, Andreas; Eliades, Theodore; Bourauel, Christoph (2012). In vitro cyclic shear fatigue of the bracket-adhesive complex: a pilot study. Journal of Orofacial Orthopedics = Fortschritte Der Kieferorthopädie, 73(2):138-150.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the effect of fatigue on the shear strength of the bracket-adhesive complex.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Brackets with laser-structured (Discovery®, Dentaurum) and foil mesh bases (Ultra-Minitrim®, Dentaurum) were bonded onto silanized stainless steel flat plates with two chemically curing adhesives (No-Mix Bonding System, Dentaurum; Concise™, 3M Unitek) and aged in distilled water at 37°C for 3 days. One group of specimens was used to determine shear-bond strength. The second group underwent shear-fatigue testing with a testing machine (Zwick 1445) according to the staircase method for 1,000 cycles, and the surviving specimens were subjected to shear-strength testing. The shear strength of the fatigued and non-fatigued specimens were then compared.
RESULTS: Fatigued specimens demonstrated an 8% gain in shear strength in material group A (Discovery®/No-Mix) and a 10% loss of shear strength in material group D (Ultra-Minitrim®/Concise™) compared to the non-fatigued group. We observed no statistically significant differences in material groups B (Ultra-Minitrim®/No-Mix) and C (Discovery®/Concise™). The fatigue ratio varied between 60% and 67%. Among the non-fatigued specimens, the bracket Discovery® with laser-structured base showed circa 59% greater shear strength than the foil-mesh bracket Ultra-Minitrim®, and the adhesive Concise™ about 66% more shear strength than the No-Mix.
CONCLUSION: Shear fatigue of the bracket-adhesive complex for 1,000 cycles revealed a variable, material-dependent influence on the shear strength of the bracket-adhesive complex. However, the effect of fatigue on shear strength was less significant than the effect of other factors such as bracket and adhesive type.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
