Dental Alloys by Mind Map: Dental Alloys

1. Alloys are the combination of two or more metallic elements.

1.1. They are used because they have better features compared to pure metals.

1.1.1. They are usually classified according to the prothesis they are meant for. We found: - casting alloys - metal ceramic alloys - solders - wires - low-fusion ceramic alloys - alloys for skeletal prostheses

2. The most important features of dental alloys are: - hardness - modulus of elasticity - cytocomparatibily

2.1. Each type of work requires a specific alloy which answers specific needs.

3. In this sector, innovative techniques such as cadcam and laser sintering are gradually replacing traditional methods like lost wax casting.
