Abstract

Facial prostheses, when used in conjunction with craniofacial implants, require a retentive matrix to hold attachments and/or magnets. The retentive matrix is usually fabricated with autopolymerizing acrylic resin or a visible light-polymerized resin. The purpose of this study was to compare the adhesion-in-peel force of a silicone adhesive to auto polymerizing polymethyl methacrylate and light-polymerizing urethane dimethacrylate gel with two surface textures: (1) pumice polish only or (2) pumice polish and bead retention, and two surface primers: (1) Dow Corning 1205 primer or (2) Dow Corning S-2260 primer. The 1205 primer produced an adhesion-in-peel force that was statistically significantly stronger (p <0.05) regardless of which type of resin or surface preparation was used.
