An adaptive finite-element approach for the analysis of dental restorations



An adaptive finite-element approach for the analysis of dental restorations



Journal of Biomedical Engineering 15(5): 401-408



The present paper deals with the problem of stresses generated during the setting process of polymer tooth fillings. A finite element procedure capable of accurately predicting the stresses along an interface between two different materials is presented. Adaptation of the finite element mesh is carried out based on a simple error estimator. The procedure is tested against benchmark problems and then applied to polymer tooth fillings. The results of the study are relevant in understanding and improving the behaviour of dental restorations.
