The aim of this study was to determine the in vitro cytotoxicity of fibre-polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) composite used in denture bases. Both heat-cured and autopolymerized PMMA were tested as the matrix of the fibre composite or as a plain denture polymer. The fibres tested included unsized E-glass and silica fibres, silica fibres which were sized with a silane coupling agent only, as well as commercially epoxy-silane or methacrylate-chrome complex sized E-glass fibres. The indirect contact… CONTINUE READING
