Abstract: Microwaveable acrylic denture resins are believed to provide an effective means of repairing fractured dentures. This in vitro investigation compared the bond strength of a microwaveable acrylic resin as a denture repair material to two established auto-polymerized resins. Fifty-one specimens were made using Lucitone 199 as a simulated denture base, and were then divided into three groups of 17 samples each. Each test group was bonded with the following acrylic resins: Acron Mc, Rapid Repair and Palapress. A shear bond strength test was carried out 24 h after the samples were bonded. Fracture analysis showed that bond failure was adhesive for all groups. Shear bond values showed a statistically significant difference at P < 0.05 level between Acron Mc and Rapid Repair; Palapress and Rapid Repair, and indicated that Acron Mc and Palapress were superior to Rapid Repair as a repair material. However, there was no statistical difference found between Acron Mc and Palapress. Microwaveable acrylic resins produce repaired junctions of adequate strength.
