|Title:||Effect of flask closure method and post-pressing time on the upper denture base adaptation|
|Abstract:||Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of flask-closure methods, post-pressing times and acrylic resins on denture base adaptation. Materials and methods: The resins were flasked using a hydraulic press and closed with the traditional clamp or RS system. Conventional heat-cure resin was polymerised immediately or at 6 h post-pressing at 74 degrees C for 9 h. Rapid cycle heat-cure resin was polymerised in boiling water for 20 min. After cooling, the bases were deflasked and the sets of cast-base transversally sectioned in the regions distal to the canine, mesial to the first molar and in the posterior palatal zone. The adaptation was measured with an optical microscope (0.0005 mm) at five reference points for each section. Data were analysed using anova and Tukey's test (alpha = 0.05). Results: Traditional clamp and immediate post-pressing time improved base adaptation for conventional heat-cure resin. Both post-pressing times showed most accurate base adaptation for conventional heat-cure resin when the traditional clamp was used. Immediate post-pressing time improved base adaptation for conventional heat-cure resin and the 6-h delay in time was significant for the rapid cycle heat-cure resin. Conclusions: Traditional clamp and immediate post-pressing time improved base adaptation for conventional heat-cure resin.|
