ABSTRACT
Background:
An acrylic resin from Vertex Rapid Simplified was used for the tests. In each of the tests, the samples were divided into 3 groups, a control group and 2 research groups, which were immersed in preparations for dental hygiene. These were Corega Tabs Whitening dental hygiene tablets and Protefix Higiena dental prosthesis powder.

Aim:
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of denture hygiene agents on the properties of acrylic material.

Material and methods:
An acrylic resin from Vertex Rapid Simplified was used for the tests. In each of the tests, the samples were divided into 3 groups, a control group and 2 research groups, which were immersed in preparations for dental hygiene. These were Corega Tabs Whitening dental hygiene tablets and Protefix Higiena dental prosthesis powder. Hardness, impact strength, bending strength, as well as sorption and solubility were assessed.

Results:
The lowest hardness value was recorded in the sample pool after immersion in the Protefix Higiena cleansing powder solution. The Corega Tabs Whitening series of Samples obtained a slightly lower value than the control sample, and noticeably higher than the group of samples after immersion in powder solution.

Conclusions:
The smallest impact of denture hygiene preparations on acrylic material, noticeable in terms of sorption and solubility values, the highest in the case of Protefix in the hardness test.
