Abstract
This paper presents investigating the effects of adding ash, keratin and hydroxyapatite to the content of Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) used as the base material of prosthesis on the mechanical characteristics of PMMA. The materials of hydroxyapatite, bone ash, and keratin were added to the content of PMMA, which is used particularly in dentistry as the base material of prosthesis, in the proportions of %1, %3 and %5, respectively. The resulting mixtures were put into the molds and solidified in order to be used in the experiments of press, impact indentation, and hardness. Each experiment was conducted by preparing three experimental samples; the results were compared according to the average values of the experimental samples.
