Abstract:

The fluid resin technic of processing acrylic resin denture bases was recently adopted for use in the dental module of the Air Transportable Hospital. The new technic, described in detail in this review, utilizes a pourable auto-curing acrylic resin for the base material and a reversible hydrocolloid for the flasking medium. The new concept demonstrates significant improvements over both the compression and the injection molding methods in that it requires less laboratory time, and permits a cleaner recovery of the completed denture. Overall cleanliness of the work area is improved as a result of the elimination of the gypsum investing medium. A modified denture curing unit, designed specifically for use with this technic is also described. Author
