DENTURE REPAIRS: Laboratory Information

For strong Lab denture repairs

An independent study has shown that denture acrylic loses 40% of its fracture resistance after being repaired by traditional methods. Most often, repaired dentures will just break again.

By reinforcing the repair with FiBER FORCE® UD fibers, it is possible to add significant fracture and fatigue resistance to the repaired denture. A study has shown that repaired denture acrylic that is reinforced with UD pre-impregnated e-glass fibers (the material used to make FiBER FORCE®) was 58% stronger than the original acrylic and 166% stronger than acyclic repaired in a traditional method.

FiBER FORCE® Advantages

  • Significantly superior fatigue resistance
  • FiBER FORCE® flexes with natural chewing
  • Significantly superior fracture resistance
  • Virtually invisible repair reinforcements
  • FiBER FORCE® chemically bonds to methacrylate resins
  • Fast lab process without delays in processing your denture repairs
  • Metal free - nontoxic - non corrosive

FiBER FORCE® repairs offer additional internal benefits to the laboratory

  • A straightforward process that offers consistently successful results
  • Takes one case to learn the process
  • Takes about 5 minutes to do a repair reinforcement
