The quantity of residual monomer content in 24 maxillary dentures was detected by gas liquid chromatography. The residual monomer contents tended to be lower in dentures used for long periods than in those used for short periods. Decreases in the quantities of residual monomer in acrylic resin dentures as a result of aging can be expressed in a hyperbola. The fitted curve also suggests that most of the loss could be accomplished in 5 years; however, complete loss of the residual monomer content takes many years.
