Acta stomatologica Croatica, Vol.36 No.3 September 2002. -

Development of oral biomaterials has been focused on composites of various kinds. From the prosthodotic point of view, the most promising composites are fibre-reinforced composites FRC. The use of FRCs in prosthodontics is rapidly growing at the moment and their applications are in FRC full coverage crown bridges, surface

retained bridges, inlay retained bridges and in root canal posts. Interestingly, the currently available data of biomechanics and preliminary clinical findings suggest that combination of retentive - adhesive elements of different kind of bridges can now be combined to a single FRC bridge-restoration. By this, odontological and subjective needs of the patient toward fixed prosthetic therapy can better be taken into consideration. This treatment philosophy is called -the dynamic treatment approach-. Successful use of FRC in the dynamic treatment approach put some demands on FRC material. The use of FRC should be easy to use for dental technician and for dentist, the adhesional behaviour of FRC to composite resin luting cement should be good enough, and finally, the biomechanical

properties of the FRC should correspond the needs of the masticatory system. Recent development in the field of dental FRC materials have been able to resolve many of the aforementioned questions. These aspects with clinical examples will be demonstrated in the lecture.
