Özet

In this study, exploring the possible connections between the structure and the functionality of a dental restoration material on the sub-micrometric scale is aimed, especially by focusing on the elastic mechanical properties of materials. Five flowable dental resin composites were investigated by atomic force microscopy nanoindentation. G-aenial Universal Flo, Filtek Ultimate XT, Vertise Flow, Revolution Formula 2, and Filtek Supreme Plus comprising nanofillers have been selected for this study. Young's modulus was between 12.61 +/- 0.35GPa (for G-aenial Universal Flo) and 11.86 +/- 0.35GPa (for Filtek Supreme Plus), which were quite similar for all commercial flowable resins.
