Influence of chewing load on wear rate of polymethyl methacrylate double cross-linked denture teeth in vitro

Selection of the facet and isolating the non-worn surfaces

Purpose of the Study: Compare occlusal wear of PMMA DCL denture teeth under two different loads in vitro. Materials & Methods: Sixteen mandibular second premolars (SR Orthoplane DCL) with a flat occlusal surface (specimens) were worn by sixteen maxillary second premolar-antagonists (Ortholingual DCL). These teeth were subjected in a chewing simulator (CS-4, SD Mechatronik) up to 240,000 […]
