At Panhandle Dental, LP, we provide superior denture processing in our in house dentures lab for patients in Amarillo, Childress, Pampa and Canyon, Texas. Dentures provide a solution to missing teeth to restore the function of the teeth for eating and speaking. The technology for making dentures has improved greatly over the years and patients can now enjoy superior quality dentures with a better fit and increased comfort than ever before.
During processing, denture acrylic shrinks about seven percent. This shrinkage has a negative effect on the fit of the denture. In the past, this problem was solved by packing the denture using hydraulic compression. However, the results were mixed and the problem was not adequately solved. Fit continued to be a problem and ill-fitting dentures are not effective or comfortable.
We utilize state of the art technology and equipment from Ivoclar to provide better precision when making your dentures. The Ivoclar SR Ivocap System uses an innovative process of controlled heat and pressure polymerization. In this system the dental acrylic is pressure fed into the mold to compensate for shrinking of the acrylic. The result is a higher quality denture, better fit, and faster adjustment time for dentists and their patients.
