• Titanium is one of the most bio-compatible metals available (proven for implants) • ADA classified material, Grade 5 Titanium • 10 micron knife edge margin right off the machine • No more metal casting problems - i.e. short margin, rocking, distortion, soldering, etc. • Ideal CAD/CAM substitute for base metal & noble metal • Single crowns to 16-unit bridges • ADA placed Titanium between High-noble and Noble alloys in the revised classification because of its excellent biocompatibility • Major insurance companies cover Titanium prosthetics at higher allowance than even noble metal
Perfect Replacement for Noble or High-noble Metal With the price of gold increasing, Titanium is the perfect replacement for noble and hi-noble alloys. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs has recently classified titanium between noble and high-noble alloys. Because of this new classification, dentists may now charge insurance companies between noble and high-noble rates using ADA Code D2794.
Low-cost and Price-stable Titanium is significantly less expensive than gold. Historically, titanium has not been subjected to the fluctuations in the highly volatile alloy market
The Most Bio-compatible Metal Available Titanium does not release ions and does not trigger allergic reactions in the body. It has proven to be very effective in human medicine and dentistry.
10 Micron Dead-on Margins Whether the margin is feather or champer, what you will see on the screen is what you will get with dead-on 10 micron accuracy.
No More Bridge Rocking or Distortion Combining the accuracy of the 3shape scanner with the ORIGIN® direct precision metal cutting - bridge rocking, distortion and soldiering are now things of the past.
Low Thermal Conductivity The patient can enjoy hot or cold food without experiencing dental pain. Titanium has a thermal conductivity of 15 times lower than gold, causing the patient to feel lower sensitivity to hot or cold.
Titanium has a high strength, without being too hard or too soft Titanium can withstand the tremendous forces generated during mastication. Titanium is easy to process in the dental laboratory.
How B&D Dental Has Overcome Past Titanium Difficulties The two problems that have limited Titanium usage for crown and bridge frameworks are casting issues and porcelain effectiveness. The robust ORIGIN milling unit provides the platform for creating precision milled titanium frameworks. This eliminates the need for special casting units that attempt to reduce the likely-hood of over-heating the titanium during the casting process.
In addition, Triceram® porcelain creates a life-like aesthetic while requiring a firing temperature of less than 800°C. This is vitally important as Ceramic firing cannot exceed 800°C due to intensive chemical reactions which occur on titanium when this temperature is exceeded.
ORIGIN milled precision titanium copings coupled with the vitality of Triceram porcelain and its unique characteristics for bonding provide the ultimate solution for strong, esthetic, and bio-compatible titanium substructures.
