BEGO’s Wirobond® alloys have been used for more than 30 years to create high-quality crowns and bridges for patient treatments and still remain extremely popular.
As part of modern CAD/CAM manufacturing techniques, Wirobond® can be used, for example, in the SLM process introduced by BEGO in dental technology. Here Wirobond® C+ forms the base material for creating tension-free veneer frames by way of additive manufacturing. BEGO Implant Systems’ trademark is its range of prefabricated standard abutments made of Wirobond® MI. On the other hand, Wirobond® MI+, which is milled using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology, is offered for high-precision crown and bridge frames as well as for bars and customised abutments in the field of implant prosthodontics.
The advantages for the laboratory are clear—mechanically flawless processing thanks to the homogeneous microstructure of the metal, the creation of secure laser welded seams of, eg, bar components and the medically outstanding polishing qualities of the emergence profile. The resulting resistance to plaque formation is unique. For patients, the use of the same alloy components means a high degree of safety thanks to evidence-based material research, which ensures a high, validated level of biocompatibility. Moreover, the low thermal conductivity provides a high degree of wearing comfort for patients.
