Abstract

Acrylic resins, used in the manufacturing of different types of intra-oral prostheses, are vulnerable to, colonisation by microorganisms which potentially endanger the general health of the prostheses, wearers. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of a novel coating (Parylene) on, surface roughness of poly-methyl-methacrylate (PMMA) samples after simulated cleansing using an, electric toothbrush and two brushing media (paste and pumice).
