Preimpregnated, fiber-reinforced prostheses. Part I. Basic rationale and complete-coverage and intracoronal fixed partial denture designs
Freilich, Martin A. / Duncan, Jacqueline P. / Meiers, Jonathan C. / Goldberg, A. Jon
This is the first of two articles describing the development and use of a continuous fiber-reinforced composite as a framework for the fabrication of fixed partial dentures and splints. The chemical composition and physical structure of the fiber-reinforced composite, along with the progression and development of a variety of fiber-reinforced composite materials, are discussed. Criteria for case selection, tooth preparation, and the clinical and laboratory procedures required for partial- or complete-coverage fixed partial denture fabrication and delivery are described.
