The present study investigated the influences of a denture strengthener on the deformation of a maxillary complete denture. Three groups of maxillary complete dentures were fabricated (Group 1 without a strengthener; Group 2 with a Co-Cr alloy wire strengthener; Group 3 with an experimental fiberglass strengthener). The denture deformation during occlusal load was monitored using four rosette strain gauges. The maximum principle strain (MPS) of each gauge, except for that at the labial frenum… CONTINUE READING
