OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate alternative methods for the disinfection of denture-based materials. MATERIAL AND METHODS Two different denture-based materials were included in the study. Before microbial test, the surface roughness of the acrylic resins was evaluated. Then, the specimens were divided into 8 experimental groups (n = 10),(More)
PURPOSE To assess removable prosthetic restoration tolerance according to the patient section of the short form of the Gagging Problem Assessment Questionnaire (GPA-pa SF) and the influence of gender, education level and prosthesis type and denture-related mucosal irritation on the GPA-pa SF scores before treatment and over a period of two months after(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to compare the cytotoxic effects of two indirect composite resins (Artglass and Solidex) on the viability of L-929 fibroblast cells at different incubation periods by storing them in artificial saliva (AS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Disk-shaped test samples were prepared according to manufacturers' instructions. Test materials(More)
INTRODUCTION Understanding the effect of aging and different disinfecting agents on the physical properties of pigmented maxillofacial silicones may help eliminate the current uncertainty as to the best follow-up suggestions for the patients treated with silicone prostheses. METHODS One hundred fifty specimens (14 × 2 mm) were evaluated for colour and 75(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate how hydrophobic nanoparticle silica and prepolymer affect the flexural strength, surface hardness, surface roughness, and resilience of a denture base acrylic resin. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 40 denture base acrylic resin specimens with dimensions 65 × 10 × 3 mm3 were fabricated in this study. Specimens were divided into five(More)
