Choosing PRO-Net for your next denture can help you avoid the unpleasant situation of breaking your denture in an inappropriate time. The PRO-Net denture is 2 times more resistant to fracture and is significantly more resistant to the continuous force applied during chewing and is therefore more resistant to temporary fracture. In the unlikely event of a fracture, you will be able to wear a denture until your visit to your dentist.
PRO-Net is an ultra-thin fiber reinforced mesh that is tailor-made and then glued as a layer in the middle of the upper or lower denture.
PRO-Net is virtually invisible and does not add mass or thickness to the prosthesis. In fact, dental technicians can now make dentures thinner and more comfortable than ever.
If your previous denture snapped, it’s not because it was made wrong , but because the acrylic resin used to make the denture is fragile. Traditional dentures can easily break due to shock (if dropped) or from fatigue caused by the constant micro-shocks that occur during chewing.
Why do you need a PRO-Net denture ?!
In certain situations, acrylic for dentures is simply not strong enough. Pro-Net dentures are 2 times more resistant to fracture. PRO-Net is significantly more resistant to cracking over time.
In the following situations, PRO-Net is really recommended:
If your dentures fit well but you still breaking them
If you have a new upper denture and you have your natural teeth in your lower jaw
If your denture is quite thin
If you are prone to a strong bite
If you have implant supported dentures
Prior to Pro-Net, Labs had no choice but to use nasty, heavy metals to amplify these difficult cases. Metal reinforcements add thickness to the dentures, do not bond to the denture acrylic, and the metal is not as fatigue resistant as PRO-Net. PRO-Net costs about the same as cast metal reinforcements.
How can I get a PRO-Net denture?
Talk to your dentist and insist on PRO-Net for your next denture.
Contact your dentist to find a dental lab that already uses PRO-Net.
If my PRO-Net denture is less likely to break, how will I know when I need a new denture?
The denture teeth and resin base wear and stain over time. The tissues in the mouth are changing, so the dentures will need to be adjusted, modified or remade from time to time. This time varies from person to person and depends upon individual tolerances, habits and length of time you have had dentures. The average life span of a denture is about five to seven years.
