Failure modes of Y-TZP crowns at different cusp inclines


Bonfante, E A; Sailer, I; Silva, N R F A; Thompson, V P; Dianne Rekow, E; Coelho, P G (2010). Failure modes of Y-TZP crowns at different cusp inclines. Journal of Dentistry, 38(9):707-712.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To compare the reliability of the disto-facial (DF) and mesio-lingual (ML) cusps of an anatomically correct zirconia (Y-TZP) crown system. The research hypotheses tested were: (1) fatigue reliability and failure mode are similar for the ML and DF cusps; (2) failure mode of one cusp does not affect the failure of the other.

METHODS: The average dimensions of a mandibular first molar crown were imported into CAD software; a tooth preparation was modelled by 1.5 mm marginal high reduction of proximal walls and occlusal surface by 2.0 mm. The CAD-based tooth preparation was milled and used as a die to fabricate crowns (n=14) with porcelain veneer on a 0.5 mm Y-TZP core. Crowns were cemented on composite reproductions of the tooth preparation. The crowns were step-stress mouth motion fatigued with sliding (0.7 mm) a tungsten-carbide indenter of 6.25 mm diameter down on the inclines of either the DF or ML cusps. Use level probability Weibull curve with use stress of 200 N and the reliability for completion of a mission of 50,000 cycles at 200 N load were calculated.

RESULTS: Reliability for a 200 N at 50,000 cycles mission was not different between tested cusps. SEM imaging showed large cohesive failures within the veneer for the ML and smaller for the DF. Fractures originated from the contact area regardless of the cusp loaded.

CONCLUSION: No significant difference on fatigue reliability was observed between the DF compared to the ML cusp. Fracture of one cusp did not affect the other.

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.
