Force Versus Time Profiles of Selected Heat-Processed Denture Liners

Holt/Zylinski/Duncanson, Jr.

PMID: 1781879

The potential correlation of the force versus time behavior of four resilient lining materials and their acceptance by patients was investigated. Two modified acrylic resins and two silicone denture lining materials were tested. The response of the soft lining materials to a programmed indentation test was used to define a parameter for each denture liner product. A parameter defined as the Rebound Index, using force-time data obtained from the indentation measurements, was significantly different for the modified acrylic resins compared to the silicone materials. Improved patient acceptance was correlated with higher values of this index.
