Peek and Bre.flex are both new material that introduced to the market recently with great benefits like aesthetics and bio-compatibility but which material has less candida growth ? Bre.flex is a nylon-based thermoplastic material, composed of nylon polyamide 12 (polyamide).Nylon exhibits high physical strength, heat resistance and chemical resistance. It can be easily modified to increase stiffness and wear resistance. Nylon resin can be semi-translucent and provides excellent esthetics but it is a little more difficult to adjust and polish.
Despite of its highly esthetics features, Nylon still suffers from surface roughness that increase the colonization for candida but less than heat cured acrylic Recently, PEEK is introduced as a removable prosthesis material due to its high mechanical and biological properties but further clinical studies or systematic reviews focusing on the use of PEEK dentures are needed.
The patient will be treated in visits designated as follows:
Visit 1: Preoperative records, clinical, radiographic examination (panoramic and periapical x-rays for evaluation the crown-root ratio, the apical condition of the abutment and their alveolar bone support of abutment) and primary impression will be performed with irreversible hydro-colloid impression material (alginate), The impressions will be poured with type IV dental stone to obtain diagnostic casts.
Visit 2: Maxillary Face-bow will be recorded. The diagnostic casts will be mounted on semi adjustable articulator in centric occluding relation to evaluate the inter arch distance and occlusal plane.
Visit 3: primary surveying is performed. Special trays will be constructed and Mouth preparation will be performed by preparing guiding planes and rests seats on the abutments. Final impression will be taken by elastomeric impression material. The impression will be poured into type IV dental stone in order to obtain master cast. The master cast will be surveyed. The proposed design will be as follows: framework for edentulous areas on both sides connected with palatal strap. Aker's clasp on all abutments with buccal retention.
Visit 4: the metal framework is tried into the patient's mouth. Jaw relation is recorded.
Visit 5: The framework will be tried in with acrylic teeth in patient's mouth. Visit 6: the denture base of the partial denture will be processed incorporation with the metal framework into the two different materials to be evaluated. The first group will receive the partial denture in which the metal framework incorporated with the denture base fabricated from PEEK material. The second group will receive the partial denture in which the metal framework incorporated with the denture base material fabricated from BRE-FLEX.
Visit7, 8, 9: clinical measurement will be performed for one month in three visits.

Experimental: Group 1
patients will receive partial denture constructed from PEEK material
PEEK has been successfully used over the last years in the medical ﬁeld, and orthopedics, speciﬁcally. which presents high bio compatibility, good mechanical properties, high temperature resistance, and chemical stability due to a 4 GPa modulus of elasticity, it is as elastic as bone and can reduce stresses transferred to the abutment teeth.Additional advantages of this polymer material are elimination of allergic reactions and metallic taste, high polishing qualities, low plaque afﬁnity, and good wear resistance, it has only recently been used in dentistry.
Active Comparator: Group 2
patients will receive partial denture constructed from breflex material
In the recent time thermoplastic materials become quite popular in clinical practice such as nylon and acetal resins. since the 1950, poly-amide resin (nylons) provide improved esthetics and reduction of rotational forces on the abutment teeth due to their low elastic modulus(3).
The major disadvantage of a nylon removable denture is the inability for a reline procedure and the lack of occlusal rests as well as rigid frameworks, that could lead to occlusal instability and sinking, especially in Kennedy class I and II cases. On the other hand, acetal resins present adequate mechanical strength to form a frame-work more rigid than nylon with retentive clasps, connectors, and supportive elements; however, the acetal resin material lacks natural translucency and vitality.
- Candida Albicans growth [ Time Frame: one month ]after insertion of the denture we will measure the Candida count using Light Microscope and record the CFU/ML (colony-forming units per milliliter) unit
