FractoForum
International e.V.

  • CLINICAL FRACTOGRAPHY

    Clinical Fractography will help to understand the relevant mechanisms in fractured dental restorations. Improvements in design, processing and placement of restorations are expected from the fractographic insight.

  • FRACTO FORUM
    INTERNATIONAL e.V.

    Fracto Forum International (FFI) is a new society focusing and promoting dental and medical fractographic research and education. Academics and Industry are very welcome to participate!

  • FRACTO COURSE

    Our annual Fracto Course has been re-organized. In 2016, the course was presented in a new, extended 3.5 days format and took place in Erlangen, Germany. It was organized by Susanne Scherrer, George Quinn, Ulrich Lohbauer, and Paulo Cesar.

  • THE SCIENCE OF FRACTOGRAPHY

    Fractography is the science of reading fracture surfaces of materials. Fractographic methods are used to determine the cause of failure in engineering structures. In clinical dentistry, fractography is an essential tool assessing failure mechanisms.

  • FRACTOGRAPHIC EDUCATION
    AND APPLICATION IN CLINICAL DENTISTRY
    RELEASE 2016

    The Fracto Course will provide an introduction to fractographic methods in clinical dentistry. The participation is addressed to all interested researchers in the field. You will learn how to interpret and systematically approach a fractured structure or restoration.

Welcome to the Fracto Forum International e.V.


Fracto Forum International e.V. was founded in 2013 and is a non-profit organization focusing on Clinical Fractography.

This website will guide you to the world of Fractography with the focus on dental biomaterials. You can find detailed information on our society, as well a guidance on how to become a member. Further we are conducting an educational workshop on an annual basis, teaching basic knowledge around fractographic techniques in Clinical Dentistry.

We are continuously updating the latest research on clinical fractography and provide a list of books, standards, and scientific reverences.

Welcome to our society and enjoy exploring our website!
