Sprue Design and Its Effect on the Castability and Porosity of Titanium Removable Partial Denture Frameworks
AIR FORCE INST OF TECH WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH
Pagination or Media Count:
The use of titanium in dentistry has expanded steadily over the past thirty years. Many properties of titanium make it an ideal restorative material. Titanium has excellent corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance and biocompatibility. In addition, it has a low weight-to-volume ratio and a high strength-to-weight ratio. The primary dental application of this metal has been in the area of implantology. Recent advances in dental titanium casting machines allow for the use of titanium for crowns, fixed partial dentures, and removable partial denture frameworks.
