Marginal Adaptation of Cast Metallic Dental Crowns Using Microplasma Welding Procedures
Modern welding proceedings can be a beneficial method for repairing marginal adaptation defects in fixed prostheses technology. The aim of the study was to conduct experimental investigations to determine the optimal microplasma welding parameters according to the defect type. Different Ni-Cr alloy cast metal restorations with marginal defects were selected and divided depending on the repair possibility. A microplasma welding device, Welder, was used and as filling material a specific Ni-Cr wire was chosen. The process parameters were determined for each case. Introducing the practice of welding in dental technology requires prior experiments to determine the process parameters for the individual processes and their reproducibility.
