Effect of glass fibre reinforcement on residual methyl methacrylate content of denture base polymers.


OBJECTIVES Residual methyl methacrylate (MMA) content in unreinforced and in glass fibre reinforced, heat-polymerized (long- and short-term terminal boiled and conventionally) autopolymerized (at room temperature and in water at 60 degrees C) and microwave-polymerized (3min at 500W) denture base polymers after processing were compared.
