Evaluation of ceramic adherence to cobalt-chromium alloys fabricated by different manufacturing techniquesSelective laser melting has been increasingly used in the fabrication of metal-ceramic prostheses. The longevity of the prostheses depends on the strength of the metal-ceramic bond, which may differ with the framework manufacturing technique.
Corrosion, ion release, and surface hardness of Ti-6Al-4V and cobalt-chromium alloys produced by CAD-CAM milling and laser sinteringHow the corrosion properties of cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) and Ti (Ti-6Al-4V) alloys, frequently used in dental prostheses, are affected by different production methods is unclear.
Physicomechanical properties of cobalt-chromium removable partial denture palatal major connectors fabricated by selective laser meltingAdditive manufacturing by selective laser melting (SLM) has been claimed to be less challenging than conventional casting of cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) removable partial dentures (RPDs), providing significant improvements. However, how the physicomechanical properties of Co-Cr RPDs fabricated by SLM compare with those fabricated by conventional casting is unclear.
Analysis of microstructure and fatigue of cast versus selective laser-melted dental Co-Cr alloyThe forces exerted on teeth and prostheses during mastication are repeated and dynamic, resulting in fatigue damage to dental prostheses. Most fractures of dental restorations are fatigue failure. The 4-point bend fatigue behavior of Co-Cr-Mo-W alloys manufactured by investment casting (CAST) and selective laser melting (SLM) has received little attention.
Evaluation of the flexural strength of metal frameworks fabricated by sintering-based computer-aided manufacturing methodsSintering-based computer-aided metal manufacturing strategies have been proposed as an alternative to hard metal milling. While these fabrication methods have been evaluated in terms of marginal and internal discrepancies and bond strength to porcelain, limited information on metal frameworks is available regarding their flexural yield strength.
Comparative analysis of the surface properties and corrosion resistance of Co-Cr dental alloys fabricated by different methodsThe complex oral environment leads to the corrosion of dental alloy materials and the release of metal ions that may have a negative impact on health. Digital manufacturing is increasingly being used in dentistry, but whether digitally manufactured prostheses have better resistance to corrosion than traditional cast prostheses is unclear.
Effect of multiple firings on the shear bond strength of presintered cobalt-chromium alloy and veneering ceramicHow multiple firing cycles may affect the oxide layer and, consequently, the shear bond strength of metal-ceramic restorations is unclear.
Effect of oxidation heat treatment with airborne-particle abrasion on the shear bond strength of ceramic to base metal alloysOxidation heat treatment has been studied to increase the metal-ceramic bond strength. However, information about its use with cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) alloys is lacking.
Accuracy of a titanium maxillary complete denture baseplate fabricated by using the electron beam melting technique: An in vitro studyElectron beam melting (EBM) is a promising additive manufacturing technique for fabricating denture baseplates; however, studies evaluating its accuracy are sparse.
Effect of internal design changes on the mechanical properties of laser-sintered cobalt-chromium specimensChanging the internal design of a metal framework may decrease the manufacturing time, the weight of the restoration, and the amount of alloy powder used, as well as simplify the fabrication process.
Effect of ceramic layering on the fit of cobalt-chromium alloy 3-unit fixed dental prostheses fabricated by additive, soft milling, and casting technologiesThe change in fit after ceramic layering of additively manufactured cobalt-chromium alloy frameworks has not been evaluated extensively.
ICP-MS measurements of elemental release from two palladium alloys into a corrosion testing medium for different solution volumes and agitation conditionsThe in vivo release of Pd from palladium alloys into the oral environment and sensitivity reactions by patients has been of concern. However, little information is available about the variation in elemental release from different palladium alloys.
