UNLABELLED Provision of partial and complete dentures constructed from resin is commonplace and a satisfactory outcome requires the consideration of the properties of the resin, the oral tissues and prosthodontic principles. This second of a two-part series examines the advantages and disadvantages of flexible nylon denture base resins, which have found popularity for the provision of partial dentures. Adverse effects of denture base resins are examined and the benefits and shortcomings of…

Acrylic denture base materials

A new method for adding the flexible resin (thermoplastic nylon) to the lingual flanges of mandibular complete denture and its effect on the retention of this denture: A case report

The treatment results showed an improvement in denture retention with IRIS denture than Conventional one.

Comparative study of the comfort in patients rehabilitated with three types of partial dentures

The removable prosthetic restorations with clasps made of flexible polymers and CuSil gaskets of silicone rubber, although initially much more comfortable and therefore much better accepted by patients, after two years were no longer active, could not be activated and necessited technical restoration, compared to those made of wipla wire clasPS, which were activated with pliers, or, in the case of fracture, were replaced by the technician in the dental laboratory.

The Effect of Post Dam and Border Replacement by a Flexible Acrylic on Denture Retention

Thermo-elasticHeat cured acrylic resin (Versacryl) modified dentures exhibit more retention than that of the conventional heat cured acrylic denture.

Evaluation of Retention for Implant Retained Mandibular over Denture using Two Different Denture Base Materials

There was no statistical significance of difference between the groups, at time of insertion, 2 and 4 months after insertion and the highest values of retention were enlisted with the overdenture made from them oplastic acrylic resin and that may due to high inter facial surface tension recorded values of thermoplastic acrylic resins.

The Effect of Flexible Acrylic Resin Lingual Flanges on The Retention of Mandibular Complete Dentures

It was concluded that retention of the mandibular denture modified with flexible acrylic resin “versacryl” was higher than that of the conventional heat cured acrylic resin denture.

Do flexible acrylic resin lingual flanges improve retention of mandibular complete dentures?

The use of flexible acrylic resin lingual flanges in the construction of mandibular complete dentures improved denture retention, and retention of dentures increased significantly over the follow-up period.

Alternative Denture Base Materials for Allergic Patients

CAD/CAM milled and 3D printed denture bases represent the present state of the art in this domain and are safe to use in cases of allergic patients and guarantee a healthy oral environment and a high degree of comfort.


Thermoplastic resin denture bases showed better retention and less microbial colonization than conventional heat cure acrylic resin and its impact on patients' satisfaction.



Acrylic partial dentures.

Methods of improving the design features and construction of acrylic RPDs to minimize damage and improve longevity of the remaining teeth will be demonstrated.

Glass fiber reinforcement in repaired acrylic resin removable dentures: preliminary results of a clinical study.

The results revealed the importance of both the correct positioning of the partial fiber reinforcement in the denture and the use of accurate laboratory techniques.

Effects of denture teeth on the dimensional accuracy of acrylic resin denture bases

The Michigan Computer-Graphics Coordinate Measurement System was used to determine the effects of artificial denture teeth on the accuracy of acrylic resin denture bases. Two poly(methyl

The reinforcement of dentures.

The following review of attempts to improve the mechanical properties of denture base material takes account of papers published during the last 30 years.

Stomatitis, dermatitis, and denture materials.

The preliminary conclusion is that there is sufficient adaptive capacity to maintain adequate oral function in shortened dental arches when at least four occlusal units are left, preferably in a symmetrical position.

Comparison of the dimensional accuracy of injection-molded denture base materials to that of conventional pressure-pack acrylic resin.

This study compared the linear dimensional changes of 3 injection-molded denture base materials to that of conventionally processed polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) resin to find that each material tested also responded differently to the processing stages.

Tissue conditioning materials as functional impression materials.

There has been much written on the subject of tissue conditioner materials. In the context of functional impressions however there exists a lack of consensus opinion. In this article various aspects
