Park, Soo-Chul ; Jang, Eun-Jin ; Han, Sok-Yoon ;
Journal of Korean Acedemy of Dental Technology, volume 33, issue 2, 2011, Pages 121~128
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the level of each metal in non-precious metal alloys dental casting, still used even banned for use and trade by the law, for oral health. Methods: Two kinds of metal alloys were analyzed. One was Ticonium 100 for removable prosthesis and the other was Rexillium V for dental porcelain. Two samples of each metal alloy were made in 0.5g, 1.0g, and 1.5g. Total number of samples were 12. Two kinds of lactic acid Solution, pH7 and pH4.6, were injected into each samples. After injection, each samples had been for 21days
1 hour in the water tank of which temperature was
. The level of metal was measured in each sample by inductively couplled plasma-atomic emission spectrometer. Results: In both metal alloys, metals, chrome, nickel, beryllium, and molybdenum, were founded. In Ticonium 1000, the highest level of nickel was 2.531ppm in 1.5g pH4.6 sample while the highest level of nickel was 4.062ppm in 1.5g pH4.6 sample of Rexillium V. In chemical composition of these methal alloys, chrome(14~17%) was much more than beryllium(1.95~1.99%) and molybdenum(5.0~9.0%) but berllium and molybdenum were founded more than chrome in samples. Therefore, chrome showed better anti-corrosion than other metal alloys. In both metal alloys, more metals were founded in higher pH level and more mass. Levels of chrome was significantly different in samples of both metal alloys in each pH level(p<0.05). Levels of nickels was significantly different in samples of both metal alloys in each pH level(p<0.05). Conclusion: For oral health, further studies are needed in nickel-chrome metal alloy and cobalt metal alloy of non-beryllium in addittion to beryllium metal alloy and also long-term studies needed in various period and other non-percious metal alloys for dental casting.

Jung, In-Ho ; Park, Myung-Ja ; Kim, Joo-Won ;
Journal of Korean Acedemy of Dental Technology, volume 33, issue 2, 2011, Pages 129~136
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the transmittance differences of zirconium core due to thickness within the visible light spectrum. Methods: 36 specimens were divided into 3 groups (0.6mm, 0.8mm, 1.0mm) which have each 12 specimens. The size of specimens was 10mm high and 10mm wide. The transmittance of specimens are measured by spectrophotometer Model Cary 500 that can measure infrared-ray, visible wave and ultraviolet-ray. Results: The results shows that there was no significant difference between specimen's thickness and transmittance. Conclusion: The individual's color perception is personal and there are numerous factors that influence on it. In general, human eye can perceive the color of thing only within visible light spectrum but in this experiment through spectrophotometer there was no big difference between specimen's thickness and transmittance. To sum up, The most important factors were a layed porcelain structure and its thickness rather than core thickness in the porcelain crown.
A study on the accuracy of zirconia copings using dental CAD / CAM system
Yoon, Seong-Geun ; Choi, Byung-Hwan ;
Journal of Korean Acedemy of Dental Technology, volume 33, issue 2, 2011, Pages 137~145
Purpose: To evaluate the accuracy of zirconia copings in terms of clinical verified for the clinical application of CAD/CAM. Methods: Zirconia copings (n=5) were prepared using CAD/CAM system and were sintered using the relevant electrical induction furnace, which uses a 2h sintering program with a maximum temperature of
. The copings placed at the models and the interval values were measured. Results: The meas interval values between the die and the zirconia copings were
(D). Conclusion: The maximum interval values between the die and the zirconia copings were
which is acceptable for clinical use.
Proper understanding of the test conditions will help enhancing the accuracy of zirconia coping.
