RALUCA-MARIA VIERIU, OANA TANCULESCU, FLORENTINA MOCANU, ADRIAN DOLOCA, SILVIA MARTU A Comparative Study of Mechanical Properties of Different Types of Fiber Reinforced Composites Used in Periodontal Therapy


Abstract:
Fiber reinforced composites (FRC) are used in periodontal therapy for stabilization of mobile teeth with compromised bone support. The type of fiber and the type of composite have a great influence on mechanical properties of FRC. The specimens made of different FRC systems were subject to a three-point bending test. The results indicate that the specimens which exerted the best ratio between high deflection, low flexural modulus and medium flexural strength have the best indications to be used in periodontal therapy. Regarding the fracture pattern, the FRC recommended for splinting are those that separate in two discrete parts while maintaining an intact polyethylene fiber. This aspect allows intraoral repairs, increasing the life-span of the periodontal splints. Keyword: fiber reinforced composite, periodontal splint, three-point bending test
