Abstract

The ability to chew has been relished by mankind, and many attempts have been made over the millenia to retain this ability. A gold plate was said to have been fashioned by Petronius in 1565 as a prosthesis for cleft palate. Carved wood, bone, and many other materials have been used in dental prostheses. The oral environment, however, is very stringent. So, it was only the discovery of the rubber vulcanization process by Goodyear in 1839 that led to the ability to form a denture base which is the background of modern denture technology. The development of the dough molding technique in the 1930’s and 40’s brought the methacrylates to the forefront, which they have not yet relinquished. As with most of the plastic compositions, the ability to determine the testing of properties required for the complex oral environment has aided in the development of new products. The American Dental Association specifications have been designed to identify satisfactory products, but are not always adequate in identifying properties required in new compositions.
