Poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) is one of the most widely used materials for fabricating dentures.
Though it has its success in meeting esthetic requirements, it is still far from ideal to meet mechanical
requirements of a denture. The fracturing of dentures can be caused by mechanical properties of acrylic
resin or by a multitude of factors leading to failure of PMMA. The quest for an alternative material or a
chemical modification or use of different denture base material reinforcements of PMMA, provides a clear
picture about various developments that have taken place in this field.

Keywords: Denture base materials, Reinforcing materials, Fiber reinforcements, Nanofillers.
