Abstract

PURPOSE: The purpose of this research is to determine whether pontic metal substructures, which are currently used in clinical surgeries, are designed appropriately and identify the problems that can occur due to their shape, size, and position. Then it aimed to emphasize the importance of making and designing pontic metal substructures based on basic principles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This research measured pontic basal surface (P1) used sample metal substructures in this study, gingiva margin (P2), and the porcelain thickness of maximum infrabulge of labial surface around 1/3 of cervix dentis (P3). One-way ANOVA analysis was carried out to test the differences among groups, Tukey Honestly Significant Difference Test was conducted for statistical analysis among groups. RESULTS: For porcelain thickness and SD value, the P1 part was 1.2 - 1.8 (±0.17) mm for experimental group 1, 1.2 - 1.7 (±0.17) mm for experimental group 2, and 0.4 - 2.8 (±0.92) mm for experimental group 3. Next, the P2 part was 1.4 - 1.6 (±0.07) mm for experimental group 1, 1.3 - 1.8 (±0.07) mm for experimental group 2, and 0.5 - 2.7 (±0.67) mm for experimental group 3. The P3 part was 1.4 - 1.7 (±0.10) mm for experimental group 1, 1.5 - 2 (±0.10) mm for experimental group 2, and 0.9 - 3.1 mm (±0.90) for experimental group 3. There was no significance when One-way ANOVA analysis/Tukey Honestly Significant Difference Test was conducted for statistical analysis among groups (P > 0.05). CONCLUSION: The suggested metal substructures can be used clinically as they meet the requirements that pontic must have.
