Prosthodontic treatments have become the perfect solution for any patient that has lost one or multiple teeth. These prosthetic treatments allow the patient to eat and speak normally.
Just as with many other treatment options, dental prostheses are created in a dental laboratory. They are usually made of different materials, such as acrylic, ceramic, and metal.
Unfortunately, occasionally, there can be significant issues with the metallic components of the prostheses. Nonetheless, these issues can be solved by a dental laboratory technician with a dental spot welder.
A dental spot welder is a machine that allows laboratory technicians to fix issues related to metallic elements in prosthetic restorations.
The machine possesses a control unit that regulates the welder intensity. A small hand-held device is connected to the control unit.
The device possesses a tip that heats through electrical currents. Furthermore, there are multiple tips designed to weld different types of metals.
Usually, dental spot welders come with a copper electrode and carbon soldering tip. Nonetheless, they can be equipped with different electrodes to weld titanium, cobalt-chrome, and gold.
Some dental spot welders are equipped with a pedal. This allows the laboratory technician to activate the welder with the foot instead of the hands.
The dental spot welder makes it possible to fix issues on the crowns and bridges' metal framework. It also allows the practitioner to heat and repair orthodontic appliances.
