Abstract Share this page

Plano-parallel specimens of human dentin cut from vital and endodontically treated teeth were tested by the punch shear test. Shear strength values were found to positively correlate with approximate toughness values. Statistically significant differences were found between shear strength and toughness values for vital and endodontically treated teeth, the latter showing lower values. The clinical impression that endodontically treated teeth are weaker and more brittle than vital teeth has therefore been quantitated. Anatomically different teeth or the methods used to store and cut teeth could not be consistently correlated with punch shear and toughness values. When dentin slices were constrained during punching so that bending was prevented, the precision of the results was improved and higher values were recorded.
