Abstract:

a set of composite materials were developed by blending polymethyl methacrylate (pmma) with different amounts of micro-fine amorphous silica and titanium dioxide for application as artificial teeth. wear resistances of these composites were measured with the help of a modified pin-on-disc tribometer and compared with commercial artificial teeth sample in the presence of artificial saliva. it has been observed that under the similar biological condition the powder fillers improved the wear resistances of the artificial teeth as compared to the commercial one under identical condition.
