A modified flasking technique for complete denture base processing with sandy acrylic resin
AUTHOR(S): Alfahdawi Ibrahim
ABSTRACT: The major breakthrough in the annals of modern dentistry was the adverted of acrylic resins in 1937. Their recognition and acceptance in prosthodontics are indeed incredible as they are found to be easy to manipulate, more esthetic both in the clinic as well as in laboratory. A uniform denture base plate wax pattern was made on each stone cast with a 3 mm thickness. The teeth necks were grinded from palatal or lingual toward buccal surface to allow more space for the flow of acrylic. The volume of the definitive casts must be reduced as much as possible, flasked in the lower part of the traditional brass flasks and fill with dental plaster class II covering the buccal, labial, incisal and occlusal surfaces of the teeth to give more support and prevent teeth migration. After curing cycle, the denture base was carefully deflasked, the excess trimmed and the denture surface polished. The resultant dentures processed with this procedure provides good retention and esthetic, more hygienic and comfortable for the patient than those processed with the conventional method.
