STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Acrylic resin denture teeth soften upon immersion in water, and the heating generated during microwave sterilization may enhance this process. PURPOSE Six brands of acrylic resin denture teeth were investigated with respect to the effect of microwave sterilization and water immersion on Vickers hardness (VHN). MATERIAL AND METHODS The acrylic resin denture teeth (Dentron [D], Vipi Dent Plus [V], Postaris [P], Biolux [B], Trilux [T], and Artiplus [A]) were embedded in… CONTINUE READING
