A New Rigid Reinforcement Material for Dentures
Fiber Force is a fiberglass mesh composite resin utilized to reinforce acrylic appliances. This very thin, lightcured mesh has many advantages over traditional reinforcement. It chemically and mechanically bonds to acrylic, provides rigidity and strength, is nearly invisible inside of the final acrylic prosthesis, and unlike metal, does not add weight. Fiber Force can strengthen any acrylic appliance, including repairs that require extra fortification. It is particularly beneficial in implant-supported appliances, which are often palate-free or have limited space over attachments or bars.
