Abstract:

Frequently patients attempt to self-repair their prosthetic applicance with commercial adhesives not designed for intraoral use. Three such adhesives a methyl-2-cyanoacrylate, an epoxy resin-resin amine and a butyl acetate cement were evaluated. Only the methyl-2-cyanoacrylate compound induced a significantly different soft tissue response when compared to the control, epoxy resin-resin amine and butyl acetate groups. Author
