STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Fracture strength of interim fixed partial prosthesis is of great concern, especially in long-span restorations or areas of heavy occlusal stress. PURPOSE Effects of a plasma-treated woven polyethylene fiber (Ribbond) on the fracture strength of polymethyl methacrylate (Coldpac) and a resin-based two-phase curing provisional restorative material (Provipont DC) were evaluated. MATERIAL AND METHODS A polyvinyl siloxane template was used to fabricate three-unit posterior… CONTINUE READING
