Abstract

Purpose: Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) resins are the most commonly used denture materials; however, they do not have a high flexural strength (FS). This study aimed to compare the mechanical properties of a polyamide-based, injection-molded denture material (Deflex) with another injection-molded PMMA base material (SR-Ivocap) and a conventional compression-molded PMMA (Meliodent).
