Abstract

DENTAL ALLOY DEVICES serve to restore or align lost or misaligned teeth so that normal biting function and aesthetics can prevail. Alloys are used for direct fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, fixed and removable partial dentures, full denture bases, implanted support structures, and wires and brackets for the controlled movement of teeth. In addition to applications calling for cast or wrought alloys, other uses of alloys include soldered assemblies, porcelain fused to metal, and resin bonded to metal restorations.
