The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the addition of E-glass fiber (Chopped strands 3 mm size) with 1% and 1.5% weight concentration on the heat-polymerized acrylic resin denture
base material to impact strength, transverse strength, and modulus of elasticity, and the correlation between them.
Broken acrylic resin dentures
may be repaired with auto-polymerizing acrylic resin, heat-curing acrylic resin and recently, with visible light-cured resin.

base with a Ni-Cr alloy plate.
As suggested by Lorton, Phillips  (1979), the dimensional changes that occur in acrylic resin dentures
are complex, and many processing variables interact with one another simultaneously.
Key Words: Acrylic Teeth, Acrylic Resin Denture
Base, Teeth Debonding.
Fracture of acrylic resin denture
base occurs frequently because of fatigue and chemical degradation of base material .
Acrylic resin denture
contains methyl methacrylate (MMA) as a residual monomer.

The amount of residual monomer in an acrylic resin denture
base, has been determined using various methods.
4 The release of residual monomer decreases with time, hence storing the acrylic resin denture
in water for at least 24-48 hours before insertion is recommended.
The literature was reviewed by Cunningham7 relating to the determination of the tensile bond strength of acrylic resin denture
teeth to the denture base material.

Techniques for bonding denture teeth to acrylic resin denture
base remains empirical, with little consensus from the literature, among clinicians or among dental laboratories.
