Dynamics of composite polymerization mediates the development of cuspal strain

Published inDental materials journal, vol. 22, no. 10, p. 896-902
Publication date2006

In the current study, we used electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI) to measure tooth deformation in response to polymerization of five resin composites with a range of polymerization shrinkage. Our hypothesis was that composites with higher polymerization shrinkage should cause more cuspal strain as measured by ESPI.
