The study aims to evaluate the effect of some commercially available natural products (soda+ vinegar, soda +thymol , saturated salt solution) in relation to the commercial denture cleansers (Protifex) ,on surface roughness and hardness dimensional accuracy of acrylic denture base materials. one hundred samples were prepared from heat activated acrylic resin denture base material, they are (1cm*1cm*2mm length, width and thickness respectively). After that, half of the samples for each group were immersed for ½ hr per day in the denture cleanser, the other half of the samples immersed for 8 hr per day in the denture cleanser through one month. The denture cleansers used are three solutions prepared freshly everyday for immersion of the samples. The surface roughness of the samples were tested by using Stylus profilometer(Talysurf 10, England), while the hardness of the samples were tested by using Rockwell hardness tester (Wolpert, Germany), the mean is taken for each group and evaluated by using one way analysis of variance test, Dunnet T-test to compare the groups. The results demonstrated that there were no significant differences in the surface roughness and hardness, but with significant difference between treats of length of acrylic resin denture base material and duration of immersion at (P=0.05). All the prepared natural solutions would be accepted in relation to effect on surface roughness , dimensional accuracy, and hardness of acrylic denture base material.
