4. What Zirconia brands do you use for Full Contour option?
We can fabricate Bio ZX2 ®, BruxZir ®, and Lava ®. We feel that Bio ZX2 ® is one of the most Translucent Full Contour Zirconia option Available. Recommended for Posterior Restorations. Here is some more information on Bio ZX2.
5. Can you add teeth and repair flexible partials?
Yes, we can repair and add teeth to DuraFlex flexible partials and nylon flexibles like Valplast and TCS. Because flexible partials are thermo-injected, they cannot be relined. Instead, flexible partials must be rebased, with all new base material. Two full working days and primary and opposing models are necessary for all fabrications, repairs and tooth additions. Unfortunately, same day service is not possible.
6. What brands or types of flexible partials do you make and repair?
Valplast ®, TCS Flexible ®, and FlexStar ® are all brands of nylon flexible-based partial that we have produced and can repair. Duraflex ® is a newer, non-nylon flexible-based partial that is our default material for all new cases. At this time we are not able to repair or add teeth to Flexite or FRS partials, although we are able to rebase them with all new DuraFlex material.
7. What is a Duraflex ®?
Duraflex ® is a newer, non-nylon, semi-crystaline thermo-plastic resin. It is also hypoallergenic, using no monomers or other chemicals for curing. Unlike Nylon, it does not absorb moisture, so it is less inclined to stain or retain odors. It is also less prone to warping. As with Nylon, teeth and clasps can be added to existing partials. We believe Duraflex ® is a superior product to the Nylons available, and use it as our default material for all new flexible based partials.
8. Can Duraflex ® be combined with metal cast frames?
Yes, we can combine Duraflex ® with cast metal frames to create hybrid partials with less visible, more aesthetically pleasing flexible clasps.
9. How long does it take to get an Acrylic Night Guard?
Typically, we can fabricate an acrylic night guard in three days. For a complete schedule of in lab turn around times, please visit Send A Case section.
