Conversion vs. shrinkage of N’Durance

IADR General Session – Toronto - July 2-5, 2008 (Oral presentation – Abstract #1812)

Several approaches to improved dental composites have been studied. One of these approaches is to increase the biocompatibility by increasing the monomer conversion and thereby reducing the elution of components. Great strides have been made, but manufacturers battle the problem of an increase in shrinkage contraction and stress when the monomer conversion increases.
