Abstract


Objective: To determine the average weight of conventional complete dentures processed with acrylic resin base material and the associated clinical significance

Materials and methodology: Weight of a total of 200 complete dentures; 100 ideal dentures fabricated by pre clinical students and 100 mucosal borne complete dentures fabricated for patients; was measured in a caliberated glass jar.  The weights of maxillary and mandibular complete dentures were compared and association between age, gender and duration of edentulousness was seen.

Results: The average weight of maxillary and mandibular patient’s dentures was found to be 13.46 ±3.90 gm and 11.33±3.07 gm respectively. The average weight of ideal maxillary and mandibular dentures was found to be 17.7 ±3.21gm and 15.11±3.44 gm respectively.

Conclusion: The average weight of maxillary denture was more than that of mandibular denture in ideal as well patients’ denture.
