Dental Ceramics Modified by Ternary Glass-Ceramic Coatings: Characterization and In Vitro Bioactivity Study

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study new ternary bioactive mixtures were investigated, which are appropriate for applications as coatings on the surface of dental ceramics. The fabrication of mixtures based on the combination of dental ceramic, hydroxyapatite and bioactive glass was demonstrated. The mixtures were characterized by FTIR, XRD and SEM and their bioactive behavior was investigated by immersion in Simulated Body Fluid (SBF). The ternary mixture consisted of a high fusing leucite-feldspathic dental ceramic which exhibited the highest bioactive behavior assigned to the characteristic crystal phases occurring under the specific heat treatment investigated.
