Simulated occlusal wear utilizing the artifical mouth included natural enamel against isosit and polymethyl methacrylate splint materials. The results reported in volume loss (mm3) demonstrated the isosit material to be 55-67% more resistant to wear than polymethyl methacrylate. No wear occurred on the enamel surface opposing either splint material.
