Disease relevance of Tooth Preparation


High impact information on Tooth Preparation

  • The model was considered to be restored by means of alumina porcelain veneers with different tooth preparation designs [3].
  • Thirty pairs of restorations of Pertac II, using the adhesive Prompt L-Pop, were placed in caries-free cervical erosion/abfraction lesions without tooth preparation [4].
  • Fundamentals of extracoronal tooth preparation. Part I. Retention and resistance form. 1974 [5].
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ninety-six extracted human third molars received a standardized tooth preparation: 0.5-mm chamfer preparation and occlusal reduction of 1.3 to 1.5 mm [6].
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the fracture resistance of re-attached coronal fragments of teeth using different materials and tooth preparations [7].

Anatomical context of Tooth Preparation

  • Influence of tooth preparation design on the stress distribution in maxillary central incisors restored by means of alumina porcelain veneers: a 3D-finite element analysis [3].

Associations of Tooth Preparation with chemical compounds

  • Barrack introduced an inlay type tooth preparation for the occlusal rest plus shallow vertical proximal grooves, and Meiers used grooves as an esthetic alternative to proximal extensions [8].
  • A typhodont containing Ivorine teeth model with six (6) full-crown tooth preparations were used as the positive control [9].
  • Also, a wide variety of diamond/tungsten plated abrasive Lamineer tips in a Profin Handpiece may be used for tooth preparation as well as for finishing restorations [10].
  • In this study, a 4% potassium nitrate-zinc oxide eugenol temporary cement was used to secure provisional crowns over recently prepared teeth and it significantly reduced the incidence and severity of pain after tooth preparation and impression taking [11].
  • Indirect intraoral inhibition of polymerization that results from contact of oral tissues with latex gloves during tooth preparation and gingival retraction procedures has been reported [12].

Gene context of Tooth Preparation


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Tooth Preparation

  • To facilitate this collaboration, prosthodontists should not only appreciate the periodontic implications of gingival displacement procedures and tooth preparation, but should be knowledgeable about the types of gingival tissues, osseous topography, occlusal effects, and their implications for abutment choice [17].
  • Internal tooth preparation tapers or convergence angles were frequently greater than 20 degrees, leading to relatively-wide occlusal isthmus widths, especially for onlays [18].
  • This valuable treatment option facilitates tooth preparation, path of insertion, optimum oral hygiene, and a better pontic and abutment design, while occlusal forces can be directed against the long axes of the teeth for a more predictable prognosis [19].
