Clinical literature details the causes for deformation and failure of acrylic resin complete denture bases. These findings are used to select patterns of high performance polyethylene fiber reinforcement that would best use the properties of the material and improve the mechanical behavior of the prostheses. A technique is described for making reinforced maxillary and mandibular bases with the fibers placed as suggested by the analysis. Microscopic observations of cross sections of reinforced… CONTINUE READING
