In the Netherlands in the 1980s palladium based dental alloys were often used in substructures of metal-ceramic restorations. However, after their introduction to the market some unexplained problems came to light: porosity on the metal-ceramic interface, frequent failure of solder joints, margin lift and distortion of bigger constructions. Later, palladium allergies could be added to the list. A 1989 dissertation investigated these problems and underlying causes and came up with answers and solutions. Recent problems like the breakage and chipping of porcelain on zirconia cores shows again that industry is sometimes unaware of adjustment problems at the moment that a new product is introduced to the market.
