Objective: Since the 1930s, a variety of resins have been introduced into dental treatments for the construction of dental prostheses and their efficacy has been based on physical, chemical and biological properties. Denture breakage is usually related to faulty design, faulty fabrication, and/or poor materials choice. Purpose: of this study is to investigate (in vitro) the fatigue bond strength and impact bond strength of the denture repaired by light-cured acrylic resins by using different chemical solvents such as acetone, monomer and thiner. Materials and methods: The acrylic resin used are heat-cure, specially designed molds are use to prepare 6 groups of specimens following the manufacturer's instruction (5 specimens for each cured polymerization). Specimens were cut in guiding by standardized positional jig. The ends of specimen saturated by different solvents acetone, thiner and monomer before repairing. To evaluate the impact strength, plastic strips were fabricated as per the dimensions (50×5×4) mm. Alternating bending fatigue machine was used to test the ten samples with the dimension of (70102.5) mm. Result: impact bond strength with monomer solvent higher than thiner solvent and acetone solvent. Fatigue bond strength with acetone solvent higher than thiner solvent and monomer solvent. Acetone, thiner and monomer were applied as solvents, the results of all surface treatments revealed significant difference at (P- value <0.05) in mean value (no significant for fatigue bonde strength but significant with impact bond strength.
