Replacement of missing teeth with fiber-reinforced composite FPDs: clinical protocol

Published inPractical procedures & aesthetic dentistry, vol. 15, no. 3, p. 195-202;quiz204
Publication date2003

The concept of minimally invasive preparation protocols has resulted in reduced loss of critical tooth structures and maintenance of optimal strength, form, and aesthetics. While various treatment options have been described for single-tooth replacement, fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) fixed partial dentures (FPDs) provide a viable treatment alternative with proven mechanical properties, aesthetics, and function. This article presents several clinical scenarios in which minimally invasive adhesive FRC FPDs are provided to deliver enhanced predictability, strength, and durability.
