ABSTRACT: From practical point of view, parameters of interest are only those that can be clinically evaluated and measured both in vivo, and in vitro, using matched samples and adequate methods. For this research direction, it is important to determine the volume of worn material, because wearing is defined as a permutation of a material mass. It is well known the fact that masticatory parameters (occlusive force, number of masticatory cycles and distance of gliding/sliding) remain constant in time.
Keywords: ceramic material, wear volume, wear coefficient.
