Cobalt–chromium alloys fabricated with four different techniques: Ion release, toxicity of released elements and surface roughness -

ObjectiveTo investigate the metal ion release, surface roughness and cytoxicity for Co–Cr alloys produced by different manufacturing techniques before and after heat treatment. In addition, to evaluate if the combination of materials affects the ion release.MethodsFive Co–Cr alloys were included, based on four manufacturing techniques. Commercially pure titanium, CpTi grade 4 and a titanium alloy were included for comparison. The ion […]

Base metal alloys for fixed prosthodontics -

Cobalt-chromium alloys are now commonly used for fixed dentures and single crowns. The alloys are attractive because they are light and provide high stiffness due to their high elastic modulus (Young’s modulus) compared with noble metal alloys, pure titanium or titanium alloys.

Titan – det biokompatible metallet med potensial for forbedring -

Over and above titaniums’s acknowledged biological and biochemical compatibility with the body, the biomechanical compatibility can be improved through alloying and heat treatment that reduce its inherent stiffness, bringing it closer to the stiffness of tooth structure, while increasing its strength.

Promotion of Adhesion Between Resin and Silica-coated Titanium by Silane Monomers and Formic Acid Catalyst -

Three bifunctional silane coupling agent monomers and their blends with a cross-linking silane were investigated as six experimental adhesion-promoters in vitro. Three organosilane monomers, 3-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane, styrylethyltrimethoxysilane, and 3-(N-allylamino)propyltrimethoxysilane, were prepared as 1% (v/v) primers and also blended with a cross-linking silane, 1,2-bis-(triethoxysilyl)ethane at 0.5% (v/v), in a 95:5 solution of ethanol in deionized water.
