Cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon oil 0,05% is used in this research due to its effectiveness inhibit the growth of C. albicans and its low toxicity to the oral mucosa tissue. Purpose: The study aims is to find how long the acrylic plate can be soaked in the cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon oil 0,05% which have no effect on decreasing the impact strength of acrylic plate. Method: This research was done in experimental laboratory method with after only control group design and using acrylic plates. The sample is divided to six group.
