Dentsply Sirona’s Lucitone High Impact Pour Acrylic (HIPA) is the first pourable acrylic denture base on the market to exceed both of the required International Organization for Standardization standards for improved impact resistance, according to the company. The self-curing material is designed for use in the fabrication, repair, rebasing, or relining of full and partial dentures, including implant overdentures or other dental appliances. It also features excellent color stability and accurate fit-to-model, Dentsply Sirona reports.
“Lucitone HIPA truly provides solutions to dental labs. Labs who use the traditional heat-cured technique can now work faster while still providing a high-impact denture,” said Catherine Bonser, Dentsply Sirona’s director of prosthetics, global removable products. “Increased durability reduces the potential for fractures in the dental lab, resulting in time and cost savings due to less remakes. And, increased durability reduces the risk of breakage from the patient during normal use.”
