Fractal analysis at varying locations of clinically failed zirconia dental implants

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that the fracture toughness of ceramics can be determined from the fractal dimensions (D) of their fracture surfaces and that the surface should be leveled to obtain an accurate D measurement. This study was to determine the effects of leveling operations and distance from the failure origin on the D values.
