    Abstract

    This paper was presented to the Annual Meeting of the British Society for the Study of Prosthetic Dentistry in April 2004 at Latimer House, Buckinghamshire, England. Abstract - The bond strength of acrylic teeth to denture base resins was tested using a widely-accepted technique. The pre-treatments included abrading and grooving the teeth, the application of monomer and the application of a proprietary bonding agent. Each of the 360 specimens was tensile-tested until fracture, using a universal testing machine. When bonded to heat-cured resin, the grooved teeth had the highest mean bond strength while the grooved monomertreated group had the lowest. When bonded to cold cure resin, the unabraded monomer-treated teeth had the highest mean bond strength and the unabraded group the lowest.
