Abstract

Pure titanium and titanium alloy have been developed to apply to general machinery for medical and dental use.<BR>Titanium has some unfavorable characteristics when casting for use.<BR>Evaluation of the casting and mechanical properties was done to determine if pure titanium can be applied to the metal framework.<BR>The results were as follows:<BR>1. External and internal casting defects occurred easily.<BR>2. Reacted layer was formed on the surface of titanium at high temperature.<BR>3. Manufacturing cost was high.<BR>4. Titanium could substitute for gold alloy due to its mechanical properties.<BR>Manufacturing cost and difficulty were the negative factors when developing titanium for use even if with the mechanical property was similar to the gold alloy. Application of titanium to dentistry should be done considering the mechanical and biocompatible characteristics such as low specific gravity and low allergic effect. So-called environmental hormone is drawing attention these days. Various alloys may be evaluated of their biocompatibilities before applying to the oral cavity in the very near future.
