Abstract

  Restoration of carious teeth is generally done with various restorative materials. Which include Metallic and Non-Metallic materials like Silver Amalgam, Light cured Composite resin, Glass ionomer cement etc. which partially fulfill the objectives of restoration. This invitro study was conducted to evaluate the fracture resistance of Silver Amalgam, Light cured Composite resin (Solare sculpt), and an Alkasite restorative material (Cention N). A total of 30 specimens, with 10 specimens in each of 3 groups were fabricated using Teflon coated stainless steel die with 8.5 mm diameter and 3 mm depth mold space. Group1 – Silver Amalgam, Group 2 – Light cured Composite resin, Group 3- Alkasite Restorative Material (Cention N). All Samples were tested for fracture resistance by a universal testing machine. The results obtained after fracture were analyzed using ANOVA and post hoc Tukey test. The results shows significant difference between the 3 groups with Group 3 Alkasite restorative material exhibits the highest fracture resistance compared to the remaining groups.
