    Help! With an Acrylic Allergy, email: davidape@gmail.com

    I am a patient from India that suffers from an acrylic allergy and wears a complete upper denture. A few years ago I had a denture made from Northerm (that is non-acrylic Styrene Acrylonitrile) denture base and ceramic teeth from IVOCLAR. Northem, sourced from The Fexite Company, has been discontinued because it is prone to cracking. Unfortunately my denture has also developed a crack, so I am looking for an alternative. Thinking of a complete denture base from Valplast or Sunflex. i think Sunflex is more rigid than Valplast. For these materials,...See more

  • I manage a one day denture clinic and my lab uses Lucitone Hy-Pro acrylic with a 2:1 ratio of Hygenic Paragon Denture resin/ Hygenic Quick Cure Denture resin containing 007 monomer. We drop the packed denture into cool water, bring upto a boil (approx. 25 min), boil for 30 min. On occasion we get get real bad porosity on the lingual side of lower dentures. I have zero idea why- any thoughts? — tagged Acrylic and Lucitone 199®

    In regard to being a home based dental lab. I too am one of the 10 labs owners interviewed for this article. No one seems to ask why there are so many of us. Could it be the wages paid by the larger commercial labs? My first job at a lab(after 4 years in the military as a dental assistant/hygienist. was for minimum wage in 1977 ($3.00 an hour). after 3 years I was making $4.50 an hour. Kinda hard to make a living on that. So after trying several other labs and never making more than 350.00 a week I decided to buy out an existing lab. I would like to support my family with a living wage. I have...See more — tagged Home-Based Labs
