Dental Fiber Technology

 

Dental Fiber Technology


This new technology has opened the door for many new treatment options

  

WHAT IS DENTAL FIBER TECHNOLOGY?

Dental fibers could be compared to glass fiber and reinforced steelwork as is been used in the building industry. On this smaller scale, the reinforced restoration or framework provides a very strong and durable product that is now being applied in the mouth to withstand everyday chewing and biting forces. 
 

FIBER RE-INFORCED COMPOSITE RESTORATIONS

Composite restorative materials are tooth-coloured fillings that are bonded with a resin to the teeth.  No undercuts are necessary as in traditional materials and this act as a very non-invasive and patient friendly restoration. The fiber addition to this material greatly enhances the strength, adding more flexibility. Bigger fillings are now possible!

more flexibility for bigger restorations

 

DENTAL FIBER POSTS

After root canal treatment a tooth is very weak in structure and a post is often placed to strengthen it. Fiber technology introduces the anatomical post, which has the following advantages comparing to other traditional posts.

ADVANTAGES OF ANATOMICAL POSTS

  • Flexible and fracture resistant
  • White, natural looking colour
  • Easy to remove
  • Very strong
  • Bonding to tooth structure
     

Placement of these posts often strengthen the tooth enough to delay the immediate need for crowning the tooth.

 

DENTAL FIBER RETAINERS

One of the treatment options of this technology offers the replacement of metal retainers and splints with an aesthetic solution.

DENTAL FIBER RETAINER APPLICATIONS

  • Orthodontics
    After orthodontic treatment the patient is very often left with a metal retainer to prevent any further movement of the teeth.  These metal retainers often make it difficult for the patient to keep these teeth clean. The un-bonded middle teeth very often still move leaving the patient very frustrated. Tooth coloured fibers provide both an aesthetic alternative and prevention of middle teeth movement.
  • Space Holders
    After the extraction of a tooth it is often necessary to place a space holder across the gap to keep the space from closing until further treatment is due.  Tooth-coloured fibers provide the cosmetic option.

 


DENTAL FIBER SPLINTS

Many times after an accident to the teeth, some of these teeth are loose and get splinted together using a wire-system. Tooth-coloured fiber splints provide the cosmetic alternative. Loose teeth resulting from Periodontitis / Gum Disease are sometimes splinted together as a temporary measure or long-term treatment to prevent movement. Tooth-coloured fiber splints provide the cosmetic alternative.

DENTAL FIBER APPLICATIONS

  • Splinting of loose teeth directly in the mouth
  • Treating food impaction
  • Replacing missing tooth directly in 1 appointment (See photo 1)
  • Metal-free orthodontic retainers
  • Strenghtening of large composite fillings (no expensive crowns needed.)
  • Fiber bridges (See photo 2)
  • Metal-free fillings (See photo 3)
  • Strengtening of tooth after Root Canal Treatment by placing of dental fiber posts

CARE FOR DENTAL FIBERS green_cross_01

  • Daily flossing and brushing is essential to keep plague away
  • Soft pics to get in those hard to reach places
  • A daily mouth rinse containing fluoride to clean all the hard to reach places
  • Avoid biting on hard objects and sticky foods
  • Visit the dentist every 6 months for follow-ups
