      Here is a review I promised Ron but first a backstory. I have experience working with flexible partials and anyone who does knows how difficult they are to finish and polish. This is one of the reason why I have never offered them in my lab. However, lately I have been wanting to expand my product line and have been giving thought to flexible partials providing I can find a material I like working with and doesn't require an investment in new equipment which I really don't have the room for. Also, a large local commercial lab that probably did the majority of the flexible partials for the dentist in the area closed it's doors 2 months ago leaving an opportunity to capture that part of the market.

      3 weeks ago one of my accounts contacted me and asked if I could do him a favor and find a way to make him a temporary immediate flexible partial for one of his patients. Not wanting to pass up this opportunity I said "yes" and ran over to his office and picked up the case thinking "how am I going to do this" the whole way back to my lab. I know labs out of state that can do them but I wanted to do this myself. As soon as I got back to the lab I logged into this forum and did a search for flexible partials as a start and the first post it pulled up was about the Qdental flexible acrylic Ron had recently posted. I saw he was sending out samples so I contacted him and explained the situation I was in and asked if he could send me a sample, which he did. I kept my fingers crossed hoping it was all he said it was and I could process and finish it using equipment and materials I already have.

      I waxed up the case as you normally would for a flexible partial and made sure it was well sprued (is that a word?) and vented so the liquid material would flow well and not trap any bubbles. One other thing I did was to place the material in a refrigerator for an hour to bring down the temp and setting time. The last thing I wanted was for this material to start setting up and thicken as I was pouring it. It's measured by weight and not by volume so a small gram scale is needed. It poured well and I placed it in a pressure pot filled with hot water and allowed it to polymerize for an hour (the instructions say 45 minutes but I got sidetracked).

      When finished processing I removed it from the pressure pot and hydrocolloid and was relieved to see it poured perfectly. It finished and polished as normal heat and cold cure acrylic does and seemed to have the same flex properties the traditional flex partials. I also did a little experimenting and you can add to this finished material so repairs and relines are doable. The only draw back was the color. It was plain light pink and I was hoping it was similar to 199 which the pictures seemed to represent. No big deal breaker but I hope they offer a pink fibered shade or I may have to experiment and add fibers. I like the material and will be making samples in the coming weeks hoping to shop them around and increase accounts.

      Pros; Doesn't need special equipment, can use equipment you probably already have in the lab. Easy to finish and polish. Can be repaired and relined.

      Cons; The material color, I prefer more of a 199 shade but that's just me and it won't stop me from using the material.

      (yes, the patient did have 5 incisors - 2 laterals on her right side.

      @David Laville thanks for taking the time to do this. I believe the only sample I had left was translucent pink the
      day you contacted me. I have the standard pink in stock if you would like to try it.

      I would like to try the standard pink. Also would like to try clasp material if that can be sampled?

      Sure, is it a sample? I really want to get some samples out there and the closer to 199 it is the better. When I worked for a lab that made flex partials it seemed the material color and trying to find one as close to 199 was one of the doctors concerns.
