Abstract

This study measured the transverse strength of polymethyl methacrylate heat-cured resin samples repaired with Triad visible light-cured reline resin with and without bonding pretreatments and with autopolymerizing resin, and it measured the temperature rise of Triad resin during relining of complete dentures at various curing cycles. The results indicated that pretreatment with either monomer or Triad bonding agent improved the bond of the Triad visible light-cured reline resin to the heat-cured resin. However, the use of the monomer rather than bonding agent resulted in a stronger bond and obtained values similar to those of samples repaired with autopolymerizing resin. Polymerization of samples repaired with Triad resin in the curing unit for two cycles of 5 minutes with 1 minute between cycles resulted in bubble formation and severe distortion of the heat-cured resin in the samples. Curing of the relined dentures for 10 minutes as recommended by the manufacturer raised the average peak temperature to 120°C. In addition, it was shown that interrupting the light curing cycle attenuated the temperature rise, but it also resulted in a relatively softer reline resin. A continuous light curing of at least 5 minutes with the adjunct temperature rise is required to reach 1-hour hardness of 21.8 Vickers hardness number of the Triad reline resin.
