Determination of the Optimum Material for an Endodontic Prefabricated Post Using a Sub-Problem Approximation Method
The success in the chewing process depends on the performance of the tooth used. Actually, taking care of the tooth and improving its performance can change our life. Therefore, the treatment process of the teeth has become more necessary in the life of a dental patient. Nowadays, a post plays an important vital role in this process. In the present work, analysis of the effect of the post material on the performances of the components of endodontically treated teeth (ETT) was carried out through the finite element analysis (FEA). The effects of post material on the von Mises stress component (Svon), shear stress, and displacement component (Usum) occurred on the all components of ETT were investigated. After that, the determination of the optimum material for an endodontic prefabricated post (EPP) was investigated through the sub-problem approximation method.
