Zirconia Fracturing Prevention, A Scientific Perspective
Paul Cascone, BE MetE, MS, SVP of Research and Development
In this seminar, Argen’s SVP of Research and Development, Paul Cascone, will discuss the scientific nature of zirconia and how the material’s properties are both a help and a hindrance in dental application. Paul will present the impact of processing on the material’s properties. He will also review specific zirconia cases that have fractured, analyze the cause of the fractures, and explain how to prevent fractures in both the dental laboratory and operatory.
