Effects of brushing with abrasive dentifrices containing various materials on the surface roughness of acrylic resins

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of brushing base dentures with various toothpastes. Heat-cured acrylic resin specimens were divided into three groups and were brushed with dentifrices containing silica, silica + calcium carbonate, and silica + calcium carbonate + perlite for 22 min to represent one year of brushing. The surface roughnesses of the base dentures were then determined and compared using paired t-tests and Kruskall-Wallis tests. These analyses showed that more complex abrasive materials result in the greater surface roughness of acrylic dentures.
