Water sorption and solubility of polyamide denture base materials -

Some patients experience adverse reactions to poly(methyl methacrylate)-based (PMMA) dentures. Polyamide (PA) as an alternative to PMMA has, however, not been well documented with regard to water sorption and water solubility. The aim of this in vitro study was to measure water sorption and water solubility of two PA materials compared with PMMA, and to evaluate the major components released from the PA materials and the effect on hardness of the materials.

Conversion in denture base polymers. -

The purpose of this investigation was to determine residual monomers, the insoluble gel fraction, and singly reacted dimethacrylate monomers in heat-polymerized, auto-polymerized conventional and pour-type denture base materials.

Flexural properties of denture base polymers -

Heat-polymerized denture base materials with the cross-linking agent 1,4-BDMA and with different amounts of the cross-linking agent EGDMA have similar flexural properties.
