|Abstract:||Objectives. To quantify the influence of fracture geometry and restorative materials rigidity on the stress intensity and distribution of restored fractured central maxillary incisors (CMI) with particular investigation of the adhesive interfaces. Ancillary objectives are to present an innovative technology to measure the in-vivo strain state of sound maxillary incisors and to present the collected data. Materials and Methods. A validation experimental biomechanics approach has been associated to Finite Element Analysis. FEA models consisted of CMI, periodontal ligament and the corresponding alveolar bone process. Three models were created representing different orientation of the fracture planes. Three different angulations of the fracture plane in buccal-palatal direction were modelled: the fracture plane perpendicular to the long axis in the buccal-palatal direction (0°); the fracture plane inclined bucco-palatally in apical-coronal direction (-30°); the fracture plane inclined palatal-buccally in apical-coronal direction (+30°). First set of computing runs was performed for in-vivo FE-model validation purposes. In the second part, a 50 N force was applied on the buccal aspect of the CMI models. Ten patients were selected and subjected to the strain measurement of CMI under controlled loading conditions. Results: The main differences were noticed in the middle and incisal thirds of incisors crowns, due to the presence of the incisal portion restoration. The stress intensity in -30° models is increased in the enamel structure close to the restoration, due to a thinning of the remaining natural tissues. The rigidity of the restoring material slightly reduce such phenomenon. -30° models exhibits the higher interfacial stress in the adhesive layer with respect to + 30° and 0° models. The lower stress intensity were noticed in the 0° models, restoration material rigidity didn't influenced the interfacial stress state in 0° models. On the contrary, material rigidity influenced the interfacial stress state in +30° and -30° models, higher rigidity restoring materials exhibits lower interfacial stress with respect to low rigidity materials. Conclusions: fracture planes inclined palatal-buccally in apical-coronal direction (+30°) reduce the interfacial stress intensity and natural tissues stress intensity with respect to the other tested configurations.|
