Abstract

The dimensional changes of relined denture bases were evaluated in a laboratory study. Heat‐cured resin, two autopolymerizing resins, microwave‐activated resin and a new visible light‐cured resin were used as relining materials in this study. The gaps between the metal die and the relined denture bases were measured immediately after the relining procedure and subsequently on the first day, first week, fourth week, and eighth week. The relined denture bases were stored in distilled water at 37°C between measurements. It was shown that dimensional changes in relined denture bases were influenced by the relining materials and procedures, and that heat‐cured resin proved to have the smallest dimensional change as well as the greatest dimensional stability in comparison with the other relining materials and procedures. 1995 Australian Dental Association
