Introduction:

The improvement of esthetic restorative dental composites can be pursued on many fronts. A composite is made from multiple components but, generally, it is a blend of finely ground glasses and reactive monomers.  The monomers cure to provide a continuous polymer matrix for retaining the glass.  Together they present a hard surface with the capability to survive in the oral environment.  Failure of these composites is a complex phenomenon.   While clinical failure can occur when the adhesive force between the composite and the vital dental tissue is compromised, failure also occurs when stresses overcome the cohesive strength of the continuous phase of the mixture.   Catastrophic material failure can occur as wear against complementary dentition that slowly erodes the surface.   Those cracks through the polymer phase lead to composite failure.  To improve the composite properties, a new monomer has been introduced, FIT 852 Resin™, that can provide greater toughness in the polymer, greater extent of cure in the polymer, lower shrinkage stress and no change in composite material manufacture.

Esstech representatives attended this year’s AADR show in Washington D.C.  It was wonderful seeing our customers face-to-face and learning about the ongoing research in the dental industry.  Many presenters referenced their use of Esstech materials in research – we are gratified by the continued interest from both industry and academia.  Keep up the good work!
