The Benefits of FRC Bridges and Digital Technology in Dentistry

The use of digitization and technology in the dental industry has revolutionized the way dentists and patients approach oral healthcare. Today, many dental procedures are simplified and more precise thanks to digital technologies or new materials such as the Fiber Reinforced Composite Resin (FRC) bridge.

The FRC bridge is a modern solution for a missing tooth, which is formed using a blend of composite resin and glass fibers. The bridge is designed and manufactured using CAD/CAM technology, which provides an accurate measurement of the missing tooth and ensures a perfect fit. FRC bridges are perfect for replacing front teeth because they offer a natural-looking appearance and can be easily bonded into the existing teeth.

The application of FRC bridges is a great example of how digital technology enhances the field of dentistry. With traditional bridges, the fitting procedure is a long and complicated process that involves numerous appointments and the use of messy, traditional materials. The digital process of FRC bridge application makes the process less time-consuming and much more comfortable and accurate for patients. Additionally, the digital design process allows for a level of precision that cannot be achieved with traditional materials, providing improved aesthetics and functionality.

“Fiberglass is a very interesting material in my opinion.It gives the possibility to produce with a dry milling machine, like my DWX-52DCi, support structures for complex implant rehabilitations and in the specific case of the photos it is used in guided surgery.In definitive rehabilitation, it is always very important to consider the thickness with which we have to work, an important variable because the modulus of elasticity of the structure changes; another important variable to consider is the cantilever that the material will then have to support. In guided surgery, the fiber becomes an advantage because if we have some changes in the position of the implants it allows to be rectified and adapted to the new situation.” Simone Fedi 

One of the most significant benefits of FRC bridges is their high level of durability and resistance to breakage. The glass fibers in the composite resin provide the necessary support and strength required for chewing and biting, making the bridge highly resilient, even under pressure.

In conclusion, digital technology in the dental industry has improved various dental procedures, including the application of FRC bridges. The materials and technologies used in this modern treatment offer numerous benefits, including accuracy, quickness, natural aesthetics, resilience and strength, and most importantly, overall patient satisfaction. With state-of-the-art dental technologies like FRC bridges, patients can enjoy a faster and more comfortable experience when receiving dental treatments.

As it works toward future business expansion, DGSHAPE is promoting activities to reach the mid-term objectives of “strengthening the ability to support new dental materials,” “acceleration of global expansion” and “developing high value-added solutions for the dental industry” In the dental market, an important requirement for DGSHAPE is to support new materials. We, therefore, pay close attention to the new product offerings of material manufacturers and the needs of patients and dental clinics in order to offer optimal processing methods as quickly as possible.
