n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - What is the level of degradation of Ceramics and Composite blocks after thermocycling? [November 01, 2018] - preliminary systematic literature searches

Volume 13 Number 4
  • ISSN : 1998-801X


Search result: 23 trials were identified.

Clinical outcomes: The method applied in each trial varied to a large extent, generating different outcomes and generalised conclusions were difficult to make. Other relevant evidence indicates that in-vitro results had little significant correlations with clinically observed outcomes, thus questioning the value of thermocycling results for clinical guidance.

State of evidence and recommendations:
The quality of the existing evidence requires further assessment.

[‘Preliminary Systematic Literature Searches’ are based on SYSTEM’s periodic systematic searches of the dental literature and provide first overviews over existing clinical evidence but are limited in the number of databases
searched, as well as the assessment of precision and internal validity of results and thus do not replace the need for a full systematic review report to the topic]
