Abstract

Aim: Polymethyl methacrylate is the common material used as a denture base. Ease of application, stability in the oral environment are its advantages; however, its mechanical properties should be enhanced. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of different ratios of polypropylene fiber (PPF) in addition to denture base materials on impact strength, water sorption, and cytotoxicity.
