Perfection in dental protheses -
perfect fit, occlusion, compatibility
Examples of processing:
|Polymethyl methacrylate is susceptible to shrinkage during
polymerization. Considerable inaccuracy in the finished prosthesis is generally the
result, especially in conventional methods of fabricating dentures. To resolve this
problem, Ivoclar has developed the SR-Ivocaop® system. A special procedure which
fully compensates such shrinkage. This picture (right) shows dimensional change.
Ivocap compensates for shrinkage by continuing the injection. The clear
acrylic was added here to show how much more was called for during processing.
