Abstract

The influence of thickness and location on the residual monomer content of acrylic resin plates was examined when they were processed by three methods: a conventional method, fluid resin technique, and a microwave curing method. The residual monomer contents were measured by gas liquid chromatography. The levels of residual monomer were influenced by the processing methods and thicknesses of acrylic resin specimens, but not by location within the specimens. These results suggest that dimensional accuracy and stability of acrylic resin dentures could be influenced by the processing method, the thickness of the bases, and the shape and size of the dentures.
