While great strides have been made in the design of dental composites and orthopaedic implants, improvements are still needed. For instance the life span of dental polymer composites is known to be significantly shorter than traditional amalgam restorations . Similarly, the early failure rate of orthopaedic implants often leads to an intentional delay in the treatment of painful, debilitating joints to ensure patients don’t outlive the functional life of their prosthetics . Stress concentrations within biomaterials may be partially to blame for these premature failures.
