The purpose of this study was carried out by the embryotoxicity risk assessment of the dental alloys containing indium. We produced Ag-In alloy, Ag-Pd-Au-Cu alloy and gold alloy for porcelain bonding. For the extraction of these alloy components into the ES-D3 cell culture medium, each alloy was reduced to a powder using a diamond point and sterilized after rinsing. In order to facilitate the extraction, each alloy powder was subjected to extraction together with diamond powder using a rotary stirrer. Two-fold diluted test medium was used to estimate the presence of embryotoxicity from the differentiation rate of Embryoid Bodies (EBs) in the extract. Our test results this time suggest that 35Ag-30Pd-20Au-15Cu alloys and gold alloys for porcelain bonding involve virtually no embryotoxicity risk. On the other hand, the alloy of silver and 20% indium may require further examination.
