      Hi Lab guy
      I read some where that the Nickel in the base alloy that makes the galvanic reaction not Co Cr and those UCLA 's are Co Cr ....But the problem is we don't have those in Canada yet.

      what about the obvious just get a procera cocr abutment crown thingy all in 1 piece direct to fixture no ucla much less expensive no casting they build up really well and original components so you are covered by their warranty as well.

      Hi Hary,
      I'm not a metallurgist but I'm assuming that it isn't just nickel but other metals that is causing the galvanic reactions...plus in the oral environment, you have so many other things to add into the equation. For a few dollars, why even take the chance is my overall point.

      No, the dental professionals that are executing the procedure are. But they will tell their patients they are receiving the best of the best.

      yes of course.. Some pts still get a seperate bill. Depends on if the DDS has used car salesman in his blood.
