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.

    • "Triad did not give promising results compared to Palapress or Lucitone denture base materials when used without application of primer and bond. This is may be attributed to the fact that Triad resin was not capable of diffusing effectively into the tooth surface to ensure a satisfactory bond due to poor wettability as a result of higher viscosity exhibited by this material.11,12 "

    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: The committee screened several hundred articles, citing 518 published papers. Some are present quality in research, others provide clinical interest, and some are identified as misleading. New techniques in pulp physiology and pathology are reported. Laser use and techniques in prevention, restorative dentistry, and materials use are reported. Epidemiology of selected diseases and the results of various formulations for treatment are cited. Diagnosis of craniomandibular dysfunction is well represented as well as references to literature reviews and other sophisticated scientific investigation. Research on adhesives is presented in respect to bonding agents for dentin and enamel. Several clinical studies are included, along with customary laboratory reports on several materials.

    ABSTRACT: The literature relating to the determination of the bond strength of plastic denture teeth to acrylic resin denture material is reviewed. The papers are presented in chronological order with information on specimen preparation, batch sizes and methods of testing. The lack of uniformity in experimental techniques and the diverse range of products assessed makes recommendations for laboratory practice difficult to formulate. One consistent observation is that tooth surface contamination with wax decreases the bond strength between the teeth and the denture base material. A universal testing method needs to be formulated to replace the various techniques now employed.
