    Abstract

    This paper describes monitoring the wear of restorations borne by partial dentures over a 12 month period using a novel photogrammetric technique and modified United States Public Health Service (USPHS) criteria. The performance of Class II restorations of Dispersalloy was compared with that of similar restorations of either KetacFil or Occlusin. The photogrammetric technique highlighted differences in performance not detected by the modified USPHS criteria. It is concluded that the photogrammetric technique should prove valuable in the in vivo assessment of the performance of restorative materials but that further refinement of the method is required particularly with regard to the orientation of replicas for sequential measurements.
