Use of Polyethylene Fiber (Ribbond) in Pediatric Dentistry

Eda Arat Maden, Ceyhan Altun.

Abstract
Polyethylene fiber (Ribbond) is a bondable, biocompatible, esthetic, translucent material. By virtue of its wide spectrum of intended properties, it enjoys various applications in clinical dentistry. Different clinical applications of Ribbond include space maintainers, fixed partial dentures with a natural tooth pontic, endodontic posts and cores and splint materials in children. Ribbond can be used as an alternative to conventional treatment in pediatric dentistry.

Key words: Ribbond, pediatric dentistry
