A Prevalence Based Evaluation of Etiology and Site of Fracture of Acrylic Resin Dentures- A Survey Based Original Study
Ravishek Kumar Singh, Sachin Kundra, Shanu Rani

Background: Fracture of acrylic resin removable dentures happens frequently amid benefit through substantial occlusal force or unplanned harm. The primary goal of this study is to analyze and determines the prevalence of type of denture fracture. Materials and Methods: Relevant data were gathered logically from patients visiting prosthodontic centers for denture repairs at dental hospitals. For each and every patient requiring repairing of a fractured complete and partial denture, the factors were recorded; reasons for denture crack, the kind of crack and the historical backdrop of past repetitive fractures. Result: Out of 320 repaired dentures 176 (55%) were complete dentures, 74 (23%) were removable partial dentures, and 70 (22%) included substitution of the teeth that had debonded from the denture bases. The proportion of upper to lower total denture breaks was roughly 2:1, the majority of the cracked dentures (59%) were those of males. The fundamental driver of denture fracture was poor fitting (42%), trailed by poor occlusal connection. Midline fracture was the commonest kind of crack (61%). From the examination most of the dentures had already been repaired once or more. Conclusion: The aggregate number of total denture fractures was extensively enhanced by repetitive fractures, which can be lessened by the use of prosthetic standards in building and keeping up dentures specific amid the laboratory stages. Upgrades in the processing techniques and type of resin can diminish the rate of denture crack.
