The data were evaluated using the Pearson correlation coefficient, One-way ANOVA test and Wilcoxon signed rank test.
Results: The difference between the residual scores of manually molded and physiologically molded denture base was not significant.
Until recently, denture care hygiene has not been a research focus so there is a lack of evidence-based recommendations.

Because RPDs attach to the remaining teeth they also tend to loosen the attached teeth over time.
This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of mandibular denture buccal flange on food retention and to correlate between varying angulations of buccal flange of mandibular denture on food retention.Twenty test particles having a diameter of 2±0.2 mm were placed on the middle part of the buccal flange and the subjects were instructed to expel the test particles by performing only functional movements of the buccal musculature.The numbers of residual test particles in the buccal vestibule were counted after 30s.The angulations of the denture buccal flange (duplicated) were measured with an optical bevel protractor and trimmed to 50° and the food retention test was performed.Similar tests were performed at 60°, 70° and 80° angulations.
