Advantages which convince –
good reasons for
dental spark erosion

Using the SAE spark erosion procedure, dental technicians can work with all dental alloys without any problem. Specifically, however, with the hard precious metal free CoCrMo alloys and titanium. There are great advantages with the spark erosive production of dental prostheses that are made of these less expensive and biocompatible base metal alloys compared with conventionally manufactured dentures - for the dental laboratory, the dentist and also the patient. Since 1995, the spark erosion procedure has also been used for the passivation of implant-retained structures.

The dental laboratory, the dentist and the patient can all profit from this

  • Precision fit when manufacturing dental prostheses without clasps - combined fixed/removable
  • Biocompatible dental prostheses as only one alloy component is used - CoCrMo
  • Tension-free precision fit for implant-retained prostheses - passive fit
  • Dental prostheses with an optimal fit, improved function and as such, can remain in the mouth permanently
  • No complaints from patients and dentist: exact fit avoids the dental technician and dentist having to make changes, corrections or indeed having to make a completely new prosthesis
  • Ongoing long-term care for the patient
  • Gold replacement alloys (CoCrMo-alloy, titanium) which are too hard for conventional drilling and milling work can be processed without any problem
  • Enormous savings on materials compared with gold alloys
  • More added value for the laboratory
