Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare the mechanical properties of the nano-hydroxyapatite incorporated silorane composite material with the commercially available dental composites. Methods: Filtek Silorane resin composite was incorporated with 5% and 10% nano-hydroxyapatite crystals and then mechanically tested in comparison along with the commercially available Filtek Silorane and Filtek Supreme XT after 1, 14, 30 and 90 days period. Results: The mechanical tests revealed that the modified silorane based dental composite had a significant increase in the mechanical properties than the commercially available Filtek Silorane and Filtek Supreme XT. Significance: The collected data suggests that nano-hydroxyapatite crystals modified silorane may provide the clinicians with a better composite materials having a longer life especially in the posterior restorations where the masticatory forces are very much high. © 2013 Academy of Dental Materials.
