Quick Reference

(PTFE)

An insoluble and chemically inert synthetic fluoropolymer. It is used for dental floss and tape because of the ease with which it slides between the teeth without fraying or shredding. It is also used as a liner when trying in intracoronally retained indirect restorations prior to cementation. Trade name: Teflon®.
