The aim of this paper is to investigate the resistance to flexure of traditional and modern dental acrylic prosthetic bases. The practical utility of the laboratory studies carried out in this research is to apply the physical properties of plastic in medical technology, for improved clinical practice. The clinical utility of this research on prosthetic acrylic bases resistance is reflected in the quality of life of patients, the quality of mastication and durability of the prosthesis. Material

Statistical correlations were made in the final experimental part. In conclusion, the values obtained in our experiments are comparable with those found in scientific literature. This fact enables us to recommend the use of the injection molding technique in clinical practice in our country, as well as the abandonment of the traditional manual stuffingpressing process.
