When mixing liquid/powder ratio depends on what?
intended use and manufacture instructions
True or False. With Dental Material you want thermal conductivity.
Capacity of restorations & replacements to stay firmly in place.
Force that causes Unlike molecules to attach.
What is Cohesion?
Attraction of same kind of molecule.
What is Tensile Force?
The force moving away
What is compression?
The forces moving into the object
Tensile stress w/o fracture
Bubbling of fluids between solids.
What is casting?
Shaping by melting and forming
What is wroughting?
Shaping by twisting or bending
What is Gypsum?
A mineral CASO4 x 2H2O (calcium sulfate dihydrate)
What are the steps to mixing and pouring gypsum?
- Step 1: 50ml of water in a bowl and sift 100g of plaster and let sit of 5 seconds
- Step 2: wet all powder and then spatculate until homogenous mixture
- Step 3: Zing zing on the vibrator
- Step 4: Pour in one corner using the same corner each time you add some while zinging it on the vibrator.
Characteristics of Plaster
- Dry calcined hemihydrate, beta hemihydrate
- Crystals: spongy, porous, irregularly shaped.
- Low strength
- Low abrasion resistance
- Increased gauging H2O
How do you alter the setting time of Alginate?
By using cold water to slow it down and warm water to speed it up.
What materials have a Exothermic Reaction?
Characteristics of Stone
- Autoclaved hemihydrate
- Alpha hemihydrate
- Crystals: Prism shaped,denser
- Higher strength
- Higher hardness
- Less gauging H2O
Characteristics of High Strength Stone
- Densite, Modified Alpha- Hemihydrate
- Crystals: Spheres, cubes
- Least H2O added
How does plaster and stone set up?
