Hydroxyapatite as a Filler for Dental Composite Materials

Hydropatie (HAp) calcium phosphate is the major inorganic component of animals and humans bones. Synthetically produced, it has excellent biological properties allowing full bio–integration of a living organism. For the research as the matrix polymer commercially available fillings based on acrylic polymers will be used. The scope of the research includes the synthesis of HAp and producing the composite with different amounts of phosphate. The obtained material will be examined in terms of mechanical. The obtained results prove that composites containing hydroxyapatite can be successfully used in conservative dentistry. These composites are characterized by homogeneity of distribution of the components in the polymer matrix, reduced toxicity and typical mechanical properties of composite materials used to restore enamel and dentine.
