Design and Development of Dental Implant Using Bio Ceramics
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
Generally, dental tooth fixtures are made of conventional metals like titanium, gold, silver etc and also some other materials like Acrylic and porcelain. These fixtures are either too expensive to make or are delicate and would deteriorate after a certain number of cycles. Therefore, a possibility of using composite materials was looked at owing to its high strength to weight ratio under compressive conditions, durability and cost. On conducting research on various materials available, Hydroxyapatite in combination with Zirconia was chosen to be the ideal material. This pair was tested for the weaker one among them and the results are established conclusively which confirmed that it is indeed a viable option to go for.
