An in vitro evaluation of abrasive wear resistance of high-strength denture (HS) teeth and wear of metal plates (Pd alloy) on the opposing side was conducted. A total of 8 types of teeth were used in the experiments including 3 types of HS teeth, 3 types of conventional plastic denture (PL) teeth, porcelain teeth and metal teeth (Pd alloy). Sliding-induced wear tests were conducted by sliding these teeth over the metal plates. Abrasive wear resistance of the teeth was evaluated in terms of wear depth and weight loss. A comparison of wear depth showed that the abrasive wear resistance of HS teeth was 4.7 times that of PL teeth, 0.7 times that of porcelain teeth and 8.3 times that of metal teeth. Weight loss showed that the abrasive wear resistance of HS teeth was 3.3 times that of PL teeth, 0.2 times that of porcelain teeth and 11.4 times that of metal teeth.
The weight loss of the metal plates was minimal when they slid over HS teeth, but increased in the order PL teeth, porcelain teeth and metal teeth.
