The construction of restorative and prosthetic dental appliances comprises a wide range of metals. The purpose of study is to review impression materials used for fabricating fixed restorations in dentistry and evaluate the development of dental materials as the strength and water sorption of conventional and high impact strength denture base resins with the reinforced glass fibers. In addition, we surveyed the hygroscopic expansion on the cusp deflection of tooth composite restoration. The corrosion of dental appliances releases metal ions into the body, and the linings of the mouth and the digestive system can absorb these ions. Amalgam remains the standard of care in many countries. A reaction to the mercury contained in a dental amalgam filling may have contributed to the deterioration of the subject's symptoms. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of dental amalgam is that gaining its ultimate strength associated with a slow process. The use of a rapid-setting amalgam with high early compressive strength could be a better option in preventing early fractures in dentistry. That is interesting, that we found that residual ions as mercury may be related to capsule design features, making their disposal a predicament, however, leaching of silver is not a problem.
