Fabrication techniques and ion release in cobalt-chromium alloys
October 28th 2020
A recent study tested the behaviour of cobalt-chromium alloys under corrosive conditions mimicking the acidity observed in oral biofilm. Cobalt-chromium has become the alloy of choice for the framework of porcelain-fixed-to-metal (PFM) prosthetics also in combination with titanium implants. The alloy specimens were fabricated by both traditional casting, by milling and by laser melting and sintering.
