Titanium sleeves instead of steel?
Why are our sleeves made exclusively of titanium and not steel? 🧐
(by the way, titanium is also a certain brand) 😊
Titanium and its alloys are often used in dentistry due to a number of advantages over steel. Here are some of them:
1. Biological compatibility: Titanium is a biocompatible material, which means that it is well accepted by the human body without causing allergic or immune reactions. This makes it possible to use titanium in implantology, creating crowns and bridges, as it does not cause rejection and inflammation.
2. Corrosion resistance: Titanium and its alloys are highly resistant to corrosion in wet environments such as saliva. This allows them to maintain their mechanical properties and aesthetic appearance for a long time.
3. Lightness and strength: Titanium is lighter than steel, but at the same time has high strength and bending resistance. This is especially important when creating implants and orthodontic structures, as they must withstand mechanical stress.
4. Minimal magnetic effect: Titanium has practically no magnetic properties, which can be important in some dental procedures and studies where magnetic effects can introduce distortions.
5. Aesthetics: Titanium and its alloys have a beautiful appearance that allows for aesthetically pleasing dental structures and implants.
6. Minimum thermal conductivity: Titanium has a lower thermal conductivity than steel, which means that it transfers less heat to the nerves and can reduce the sensitivity of teeth to temperature changes.
It is important to note that the choice of
