|Title:||Effect of double flasking and investing methods on artificial teeth movement in complete dentures processing|
|Abstract:||Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate linear dimensional alterations of artificial teeth for complete dentures when using different investment and flasking techniques. Background: Dimensional changes in the vertical dimension may occur owing to changes in artificial teeth positioning caused by different investing and flasking techniques. Materials and methods: Thirty pairs of the complete dentures were manufactured and randomly divided into three groups (n = 10): (1) invested with type III stone in monomaxillary PVC flask; (2) invested with type III stone in bimaxillary PVC flask; and (3) invested with laboratory silicone in bimaxillary PVC flask. Dentures were polymerised by microwave, and 12 linear distances were measured before and after denture processing. Data were analysed by one-way ANOVA, considering manufacturing technique as the study factor. Tukey's HSD was used as post hoc ANOVA (p = 0.05). Results: Most of the linear distances were comparable for all groups. All transversal maxillary and mandibular distances were higher for group 1 compared with groups 2 and 3 (p < 0.05), except the distance 3-6 for mandibular arch, in which no difference was found between groups (p < 0.05). Both maxillary diagonal distances were higher in group 1 (p < 0.05), and no differences were found among all groups for mandibular measurements. Conclusions: Double flasking technique independent on the investment material is shown to be the most effective method to reduce changes in artificial teeth positioning.|
