ABSTRACT This study examined the tensile bond strength and failure sites of one heat-cured (Microlon) and two visible light-cured (Triad and Extoral) denture resins to two types of denture teeth. The resins were processed into cylinders against denture teeth milled to the same size. Half of the specimens were thermocycled. After tensile testing, statistical analysis (p 0.05) showed that the strongest bond was achieved with the heat-cured resin Microlon, whereas Triad resin displayed the stronger bond between the two light-cured resins. Scanning electron microscopic analysis showed that the nature and location of the fracture sites was different among the three resins tested.

    ABSTRACT: Clinical experience with implant-supported dentures indicates that fracture and chipping of teeth are becoming an issue. Tooth fracture and chipping rates of approximately 2.5% per year are being experienced at one university. There has been no standardized test developed for bulk fracture or chipping of denture teeth. Such a test would aid in the development of improved teeth and in their evaluation. Central incisor teeth were embedded in acrylic and loaded on incisal edges at 90° to their long axes. Teeth tested included ones commercially available and two sets made from improved materials designed to increase toughness. Cyclic loading was done at 5Hz from 20N to 135N, 150N, 175N and 200N. Data was analyzed using lifetime analysis software fit at each of the accelerated loads and then extrapolated to clinical use loads (Alta 7, Reliasoft Corp.) Clinical use loads were derived from extrapolation of probability of failure (Pf) data to 2.5% Pf. When carefully embedded, teeth could be reproducibly loaded to failure by bulk fracture involving a failure mode similar to that seen clinically. Clinical use loads were calculated to be in the range of 70N. Results from accelerated loading could be fit to similar probability of failure distributions allowing extrapolation to clinical use loads. This work was able to develop a clinically valid bulk fracture test for the fatigue failure of incisor denture teeth. It appears that teeth fabricated with improved materials will be expected to perform better clinically. Thus both the null hypotheses were rejected.

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the bond strength between porcelain denture teeth (Bioblend 43D) and four different polymerized denture resins (Lucitone 199, Palapress, Acron MC, Triad) with and without a bonding agent and after four different types of surface treatment (polished, HF etched, sandblasted, air-abraded). Central incisor porcelain denture teeth were divided into 32 groups of 5 each. Tensile bond strength (MPa) was determined using a testing machine at crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/min. Mean and standard deviation are listed. Data were analyzed by two-way ANOVA. Means were compared by Tukey-Kramer intervals at 0.05 significance level. All surface treatment increased bond strength compared to polished surface and the highest bond strength was found with Palapress resin with etched porcelain surface (8.1 MPa). Bonding agent improved the bond strength of all denture resins to porcelain teeth. Superior bonding was found with Palapress and air-abraded porcelain (39 MPa). Resins with different curing methods affect the bond strength of porcelain teeth to denture bases. Superior bonding was found with auto-polymerized resin (Palapress). Application of ceramic primer and bonding agent to porcelain teeth with and without surface treatment will improve the bond strength of all denture resins to porcelain teeth.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Debonding of acrylic teeth from the denture base is a common problem. Certain clinical conditions like ridge prominence leads to excess trimming of acrylic teeth and base, resulting in a weak interface. The denture base polymer debonds adhesively in the region of the highly cross -linked matrix of the teeth. To compare the effect of different chemical surface treatments on the bond between cross-linked acrylic teeth and different types of denture base material. Materials & Methods: A total of 180 wax specimens were fabricated and divided into 3 groups: Heat-cure, high impact heat-cure, flexible denture base material bonded to acrylic teeth. Each group was further subdivided into 6 subgroups with 10 specimens each according to the surface treatment ofthe ridge lap area: control, monomer, acetone 99%, chloroform 99%, acrylic adhesive cyanoacrylate, ethyl acetate 99%. After processing, specimens were tested for bond strength using a universal testing machine. The resulting bond strengths were recorded, statistically analyzed and compared. Results: Among all the 3types of denture base resins, highimpact heat-cure denture base resin gave highest bond strength. There was no bonding of teeth with flexible denture base material. Chemical surface treatment of acrylic teeth with ethyl acetate gave highest bond strength followed by control, chloroform, acetone and cyanoacrylate groups. Conclusion: Among all the 3types of denture base materials, high-impact heat-cure denture base resin gave highest bond strength with ethyl acetate surface treatment. Simple and quick tooth chemical surface treatment with ethylacetate could be an effective option in decreasing bonding failures and also avoid repeated denture repairs improving patient satisfaction.
