Abstract: This study evaluated the precision of fit of implant frameworks cast in titanium (cp Ti) and palladium-silver alloy (Pd-Ag), made by the one-piece cast and laser welding techniques. From a metal matrix with five implants, 20 master casts were obtained, to which replicas of implants were incorporated. On these masters 10 frameworks were made for each type of material (cp Ti and Pd-Ag alloy). Half of these were made by the one-piece cast technique and the other half by the laser welding technique. The implant/prosthesis interface was analysed and measured in the vestibular and lingual regions of the central and distal implants with the help of a measuring microscope. The results indicated that in the central cylinders, the Tukey test (P < 0.0005) showed a significant difference in the passive fit between the laser-welded frameworks (34.73 mu m) and those one-piece cast frameworks (151.39 mu m), and as regards materials, the palladium-silver alloy (66.30 mu m) showed better results than the titanium (119.83 mu m). In the distal cylinders there was no significant difference between the frameworks cast in titanium and palladium-silver by the one-piece technique. However, after laser welding, there was a significant difference for the frameworks cast in titanium (31.37 mu m) and palladium-silver (106.59 mu m).
