Frictional behavior and surface failure of acrylic denture teeth.

Abstract

The water characteristics of acrylic denture teeth were investigated under single- and double-pass sliding. The response of acrylic teeth to sliding was that of a relatively ductile material. The wear characteristics were affected similarly by environments of water and saliva. The "enamel" surfaces showed more resistance to penetration and were less susceptible to surface damage than the "dentin" surfaces. The effect of the second pass was to increase track width and cause a more severe mode of surface failure.
