Besides diagnostic wax-ups and Radica temps, Thompson Suburban Dental also offers milled PMMA provisionals. PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) is a synthetic resin characterized by strength, high density and excellent resistance to abrasion. Designed and produced through CAD/CAM technology, modern PMMA provisionals are made with layered PMMA that allows for a more natural look, color variation and translucency.
Milled PMMA Indications
Milled PMMA is frequently used for temporary crowns and bridges in both long-term and short-term provisional applications. It can also be used for casting and overpress procedures, but typically a different type of PMMA not approved for oral use is designated for casting.
