Abstract:

The pour type or fluid resins for the fabrication of denture bases have gained in popularity over the last decade. Their chief advantage lies in the dramatic reduction in the time required for processing and finishing the final restoration. The fluid resin technique requires only 17 to 110 of the 15 to 20 hours normally necessitated by conventional compression molding methods. In view of the nearly 30,000 denture bases fabricated annually by Army technicians, such a reduction would obviously result in substantial savings of fiscal and manpower resources.
