Fiber-reinforced materials have excellent potential for application in a wide variety of clinical situations such as periodontal stability, splinting of luxated and avulsed teeth, and replacement of a missing tooth in a single appointment with a fiber reinforced direct composite bridge. Fiber-reinforced materials have highly favorable mechanical properties, and their strength-to-weight ratios are superior to those of most alloys. However, it is important for the clinician to understand the basic structure of these materials and the different types available. Awareness of the advantages and limitations of each type of fiber enables the clinician to select the best material for each clinical situation.
This fast-paced webinar will discuss the various fiber systems on the market and offer clinical techniques you can use immediately in your practice with composites and fiber reinforcement to provide functional and esthetic restorative alternatives.
