PMID: 12066682

The introduction of pre-impregnated fiber-reinforced resin composites has provided the dental profession with the opportunity to fabricate and deliver adhesive, esthetic, and metal-free tooth replacements. Utilizing this technology, a prefabricated fiber-reinforced resin composite fixed partial denture prototype that allows rapid, cost-effective, and noninvasive fixed tooth replacement for single anterior teeth has been developed. Ideal situations for this type of service include: a fixed replacement following tooth loss from trauma; a fixed tooth replacement in medically compromised patients who cannot sit for extended periods of time or have local anesthesia; periodontally compromised abutments; a fixed space maintainer following orthodontic movement; and a fixed provisional during the post implant healing phase prior to loading. This article describes the framework construction and placement protocol for the prefabricated fiber-reinforced resin composite fixed partial denture.
