Ceramics definition: Products made by baking or firing nonmetallic minerals (clay and similar materials). In making dental restorations or parts of restorations the material is fused porcelain. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed & Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed)
ceramic definition: products made by baking or firing nonmetallic minerals (clay and similar materials).
Metal Ceramic Alloys definition: The fusion of ceramics (porcelain) to an alloy of two or more metals for use in restorative and prosthodontic dentistry. Examples of metal alloys employed include cobalt-chromium, gold-palladium, gold-platinum-palladium, and nickel-based alloys.
PROSTHESIS, HIP, SEMI-CONSTRAINED, METAL/CERAMIC/POLYMER, CEMENTED OR NON-POROUS CEMENTED, OSTEOPHILIC FINISH definition: A hip joint metal/ceramic/polymer semi-constrained cemented or nonporous uncemented prosthesis is a device intended to be implanted to replace a hip joint. This device limits translation and rotation in one or more planes via the geometry of its articulating surfaces. It has no linkage across-the-joint. The two-part femoral component consists of a femoral stem made of alloys to be fixed in the intramedullary canal of the femur by impaction with or without use of bone cement. The proximal end of the femoral stem is tapered with a surface that ensures positive locking with the spherical ceramic (aluminium oxide, A1203) head of the femoral component. The acetabular component is made of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene reinforced with nonporous metal alloys, and used with or without bone cement.
BRACKET, CERAMIC, ORTHODONTIC definition: An orthodontic ceramic bracket is a device composed of ceramic, which is intended to be bonded to a tooth, upon which an orthodontic wire is used to move the tooth to a new position.
Respirable Ceramic Fiber definition: Most ceramic fibers are white to cream colored and are typically composed of alumina, silica and other metal oxides. Ceramic fibers are able to withstand high temperatures and are used as insulation material, primarily for lining furnaces and kilns. These fibers are the primary replacement for asbestos. Exposure to ceramic fiber irritates the skin and upper-respiratory tract. Respirable ceramic fiber is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. (NCI05)
