Fiber Force reinforcement for dentures

Fiber Force is a very strong reinforcement material used in dentures to help give them strength.  It is very esthetic, comfortable and light; in comparison to other reinforcements like cast metal.

Our office did our own experiment and were VERY surprised at the results;  we took two dentures made for the same patient, one with a cast mesh (metal) reinforcement and one with fiber force out to the back of the office, to see for our selves which was truly stronger.

We used a metal headed hammer on both: the first denture with the metal reinforcement took one hit from the hammer and it snapped in half.  The other denture with the fiber force took 10 hits before it started to break.  All of the teeth had come off the denture but it was still in tact.

This was very surprising to us as you would think that the metal would have been stronger; but being that it was harder made it brittle allowing it to break very easily.

If you think you may need to have a reinforcement placed in your denture; or if you have any questions regarding this service or product,  please visit our website or contact our office               www.bramptondentureclinic.com or 905-459-7442.
