denture,

artificial replacement for natural teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures are classified as partial or complete. The former are removable and maintained by clasps, or are fixed bridges with crowns cemented over adjacent teeth or over spikes embedded in the jaw. Complete dentures are replacements for all of the teeth of a jaw and are normally held in place by the suction created by saliva and by the close matching of the denture base to the tissues of the mouth. The first-known mention of dentures is found in the 1728 manuscript of Pierre Fouchard, a French dental surgeon often called the father of modern dentistry. Various substances including wood, ivory, and metal have been used in the construction of dentures, but major advances have resulted from the development of synthetic rubbers and plastics. Today dentures are usually composed of acryllic or porcelain teeth mounted in an acryllic base that is tinted to resemble the gums.

One-way ANOVA test results showed that there was a significant effect of the addition of 1% and 1.5% E-glass fiber on the transverse strength of heat-polymerized acrylic resin denture base (p=0.002; p<0.05).
The resistance to fracture of acrylic resin dentures depends on the flexural and impact strength.
The annual number of the publications on "Google Scholar" search engine was found from year 1990 to 2017 using the key words "acrylic teeth and acrylic resin denture bases and teeth debonding" and the research trend was calculated by plotting the number of publications against time using Microsoft Excel.

Mechanical modification of ridge lap area of denture teeth, chemical modification of ridge lap area of denture teeth, type of acrylic resin denture base used, type of acrylic teeth used and presence of any residues on the ridge lap surface are the factors which effect bond between acrylic teeth and denture base which should be avoided to prevent the disappointment to the patient which may result due to failure of denture.13
The study was carried out to compare the effect of different surface treatments of ridge lap area of acrylic resin denture teeth on bond strength of acrylic resin denture teeth with acrylic resin denture base.
Subsequently by following a well- designed research methodology, data have been collected from those wearing maxillary palatal coverage acrylic resin dentures. The data have been presented and discussed in light of the available information.
