Starting with the 20th century, alloys have been increasingly used for prosthetic restorations as well as for surgically implanted medical devices. The field of dental alloys is very extensive, encompassing both the materials themselves and the manufacturing methods, which are constantly developing.
Their properties, behavior, and corrosion resistance are of great importance for the success of the prosthetic treatment. In the past, the use of high-nobility alloys generally ensured the quality of fixed partial dentures. However, later on, the increased use of low-nobility or base alloys, due to economic reasons, led to problems regarding their chemical stability, and more attention was paid to their quantification, in terms of corrosion behavior. Dental alloys must have an appropriate corrosion resistance in order to avoid the release of cytotoxic or sensitizing elements into the biological milieu and the presence of a high risk in developing reactions to common or specific allergens. The biocompatibility of dental alloys is of great importance because they are in long-term intimate contact with oral tissues. This is applicable for all types of alloys that are in contact with human tissues. Good corrosion resistance is an important criterion for alloy selection, and influences other alloy properties, such as esthetics and strength.
Both the manufacturing and environmental conditions are of great importance......
