The aim of this study was to determine the fatigue resistance of the cast clasps of removable partial dentures. The different commercial types of metals used included five cobalt-chromium alloys, pure titanium, one titanium alloy (Ti-6A1-4V) and one gold alloy (type IV) that was either unhardened or age-hardened (n = 5 per group). The test method used was a constant-deflection fatigue test in which the force required to deflect the clasp for 0.6 mm and the number of loading cycles required to… CONTINUE READING
