Reinforcing dental appliances can be a challenge for dental technicians. Metal reinforcements add weight and bulk, are usually un-aesthetic, and their efficacy is doubted by many. "Metal only holds the appliance together when it breaks" is a refrain heard from technicians everywhere. Using modern materials dental technicians can now offer their customers truly reinforced dental appliances.
From the minds that brought you FiBER FORCE®, CST® (Cable Stayed Technology) represents the next major evolution in fiber design and application: an ingeniously simple concept for fabricating an implant supported fiber structure for fixed/hybrid dentures, popularized by solutions like the All-on-4™ implant system.
CST® TEMP uses a simplified CST® technique and is designed specifically to reinforce provisional dentures for 4 to 6 months. CST® TEMP specifically strengthens the most fragile sections of the temporary denture – where the implant abutments are located. CST® fibers have shown to increase both fatigue and strength of denture acrylic.
Fast Splint Matrix® fibers are designed for orthodontic retainers, periodontic and trauma splinting, as well as for implants/space maintainers. Fast Splint Matrix® fibers can be used with traditional manual techniques or with the use of an index (or matrix) to simplify and accelerate the placement of the fibers.
