Examining precious free alloys
March 21, 2012
The fabrication of base alloy frameworks are state of the art, but often they receive a “bad reputation” with claims of much of the population suffering from toxic or allergic reactions due to dental metallic materials. It’s not to say that such reactions never occur, but when one compares the number of reported cases to the total number of units manufactured for patients, the ratio is very minimal. The risk of an allergy to food, such as strawberries or nuts, is much greater than the risk of having a reaction against a dental alloy compound.
