Abstract

Microwave processing has several time-saving advantages over conventional processing of denture base resins. Little is known about the adaptation of bases processed by microwave radiation to the cast and the mouth. Comparisons were made in five regions of the palate and ridge. The microwave-processed denture bases had equal or better dimensional accuracy than conventionally processed bases.
