Abstract The two-phase dough-moulded system using PMMA has become the almost universal method of manufacturing dentures. Despite its popularity, however, the material has some inherent weaknesses, the most important being a low resistance to fracture. Many parameters can be varied during denture fabrication and may affect the properties and performance of the dentures. This investigation examines the effect of the polymerization cycle on the molecular weight of denture base systems and reports… CONTINUE READING
