Abstract

Aims: The study aims to evaluate the effect of mixing techniques and water powder ratio on the compres-sive strength and surface hardness of dental stone. Materials and Methods: The samples of compressive strength and surface hardness testes were prepared by 2 water powder ratio the ratio recommended by manufacture and that used by dentists and 2 mixing methods rubber bowl and spatula and zip-lock bag. The collected data analyzed using one sample t-test, ANOVA and Duncans' multiple range test at p≥0.5. Re-sults: The results showed statistically significant difference in compressive strength and surface hardness among tested groups. Conclusion: Mixing by rubber bowl and spatula and using water powder ratio rec-ommended by manufacturer gives the highest compressive strength value while using zip-lock bag give a higher surface hardness value than rubber bowl and spatula.

Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the effect of three different cleanser on the color stability of three different types of artificial teeth. Materials and methods: sixty samples of artificial anterior teeth were prepared which are Acry-Rock, RMH teeth and Porcelain teeth and immersed in three types of denture cleanser(Bony plus, Protefix and soda+ vinegar) for 8 hours and the color of the teeth was measured by Easyshade's spectrophotometer at 3 intervals(1,2and4weeks). Results: Showed that the a'b values of ceramic teeth and L value of RHM teeth were significantly differencent after 2 week of immersion in three type of denture cleanser. Analysis of variance demonstrated that L'a'b value for ceramic teeth and RHN teeth were statistically significant after 4 week immersion in three type of denture cleanser, The result of color change (ΔE) for three denture cleansers of three periods of immersion were clinically accepted. Conclusion: Long period of immersion of artificial teeth in denture cleanser cause significant color change for L*a*b* values but they were clinically accepted.

Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the effect of different curing methods on tensile bond strength between soft acrylic liner and heat cured acrylic resin denture base. Materials and methods: Twenty four specimens were prepared form Vertex heat cured acrylic resin and divided into four groups: cured by water bath ,treated by monomer and cured by water bath ,cured by domestic microwave oven and treated by monomer and the last group cured by domestic microwave oven at same setting. Instron tensile testing machine was used for tensile bond strength test . Results: There is a significant differences between tensile bond strength of tested groups (p=0.001) for the different curing methods. Conclusions: The curing of soft acrylic liner by water bath had better tensile bond strength compared to microwave cur-ing.

Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the effect of microwave disinfection on transverse strength and hardness of acrylic resin denture base materials. Materials and methods: The samples were 112 samples (56 heat cured acrylic resin and 56 microwave cured acrylic resin) they were prepared in dimensions of 65± 0.3x10±0.03x2.5 ±0.03 mm (length, width and thickness respectively) for transverse strength test and 30x15x3±0.03 mm (length, width and thickness respectively) for indentation hardness test. The sam-ples were divided into seven disinfection groups; each one contain five samples which were (control, 900 W or 540W for 3min either inside glass flask containing 150 ml of distilled water)or along with glass flask containing 150 ml of distilled water or alone. The collected data were analyzed using analy-sis of variance (one way ANOVA) at P ≤ 0.05 and Duncan's multiple range test. Results: the transverse strength of microwave acrylic resin samples were significantly decreased except samples that disinfect-ed by 540 watt microwave energy for 3 minute with water inside microwave oven. The hardness num-ber for heat cured acrylic denture base showed no significant differences compared to control group while hardness number of microwave acrylic resin were significantly decreased in relation to control group. Conclusions: Transverse strength of microwave acrylic resin that disinfected with microwave was decreased except at 540 watt for 3 minutes with water a side in microwave oven. While heat cured acrylic resin after microwave disinfection was significantly increased compared with the control sam-ple. Rockwell hardness number for microwave acrylic resin significantly decrease in relation to control group; while for heat cured acrylic denture base showed no significancy comparing with the control group.

Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the best microwave power and the proper time that disinfect acrylic resin denture base material. Methodology: Fifty five samples were prepared from heat cured acrylic resin(10mmx10mmx2mm) then immersed in glass flask containing brain heart broth and inculated with swabs from patients wearing complete denture divided into: negative control group (untreated), positive control group immersed in 0.02% sodium hypochlorite for 8 hours, and nine groups of different microwave disinfection settings (different powers and times),then immersed in sterile BHI broth individually and diluted up to 10-4 and 0.01ml plated in blood agar and Sabouraud's dextrose agar and CFU/ml were collected. Results: analysis of the data showed a significant difference between tested groups. Conclusions: microwave disinfection at 900W and 540W for 3minutes showed both antifungal and antibacterial effect
