2D-Finite element analysis of inlay-, onlay bridges with using various materials
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose: To compare the impact of different bridge constructions and different loads on stress distribution in bridges. Design/methodology/approach: The study was conducted on 96 computer models of both premolars and molars that simulated a missing second premolar restored with a bridge supported on crown inlays or onlays. Simulations were made of a bridge constructed from four different materials: Au alloy, Cr/Ni alloy as well as two kinds of glass fibre-reinforced composites: Targis Vectris and FibreKor /Sculpture. The study was conducted using the finite element method (FEM). The results were analysed with PQStat statistical software version 1.6. Findings: In none of the analysed cases did stresses appear capable of damaging the bridge construction. Reduced stresses were lower in glass fibre reinforced composite materials than in metal alloys. Practical implications: The force application point has a decisive influence on stress distribution in the hard dental tissue and in bridges. The highest stress values occurred at the loading of the pontic tooth.
