How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Aim: To investigate the effect of using different materials for the fabrication of implant abutments and crowns on the mechanical behavior of implant-supported single crowns after artificial aging. The materials were tested in different combinations to reveal whether using stiff or resilient materials as an abutment or a crown material might influ...
Patient compliance is relevant to achieving therapeutic goals during clear aligner therapy (CAT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of remote electronic (e-)reminders and e-feedback on compliance during CAT using an interrupted time series (ITS) analysis. We used routinely collected mobile application data from a German healthtech...
Compliance is highly relevant during clear aligner therapy (CAT). In this retrospective cohort study, we assessed compliance and associated covariates in a large cohort of CAT patients. A comprehensive sample of 2644 patients (75.0% females, 25.0% males, age range 18–64 years, median 27 years), all receiving CAT with PlusDental (Berlin, Germany) fi...
Purpose: To investigate the effects of different commercially available computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) materials for fabrication of molar crowns, including polyetheretherketone (PEEK), on the fracture strength and failure mode of custom-made titanium and zirconia abutments after artificial aging. Materials and met...
