Framework materials

Key points

  • Most commonly used framework materials include precious alloys, Co-Cr alloys, titanium and zirconia
  • The framework volume and design depends on the amount of loss of vertical space and must follow the final design of the prosthesis to provide an even surface for the layering material
  • CAD/CAM milling of the frameworks is the option of choice, due to high precision, passive fit and high material quality
