Background: One of the most common complications of dentures is its ability to fracture, so the aim of this study wasto reinforce the high impact denture base with carbon nanotubes in different concentrations to improve themechanical and physical properties of the denture base.Materials and methods: Three concentrations of carbon nanotubes was used 0.5%, 1%, 1.5% in a pilot study to seethe best values regarding transverse strength, impact, hardness and roughness test, 1 wt% was the bestconcentration, so new samples for control group and 1wt% carbon nanotubes and the previous tests were of courserepeated.Results: There was a significant increase in impact strength and transverse strength when we add carbon nanotubesin 1wt%, compared to control group where as hardness decrease when adding carbon nanotubes.Conclusion: the addition of carbon nanotubes improves the physical and mechanical properties
