    Author(s): Ali Saleh Hatem* and Zainab Saleh Abdullah

    Background: Dentists face a variety of serious challenges, including the need for ideal material in order to deliver successful dental care to patients. To produce an effective prosthesis with satisfactory appearances these materials should be biologically compatible, readily usable, inexpensive, and easy to manipulate with regulated technological procedures. Removable prosthodontics entails the use of a variety of tools and multipurpose products that are difficult to sterilize or clean, such as prostheses, impressions, and stone casts, which increases the risk of cross-contamination between both the dental clinic and the laboratory. Materials and Methods: Three NAOCL concentrations (0.25%,0.5% and 0.75 %) were used as determined by the pilot study, which yielded the most suitable results. A total of 200 sample were prepare and divided into 3 e.. Read More»
