Abstract

Clinical implications

Palatal vault depth significantly affected the flexural strength of heat cure resin. The most frequent mechanical failure of heat cure resin is fracture especially at the midline. The denture bases fabricated using high impact heat cure resin had best flexural strength than the denture bases fabricated using regular heat cure resin which reduced the fractures.
