The misfit of denture bases was evaluated. Three different :acryUe resins were employed: heat curing, self-curing and "fluid" resins. The denture bases were measured after their release of the casts and storage in 37°C distilled water durillg 7 days. Bach kind of acrylic resin had a different behavior as related tot its thickness and storage in distilled watter, being the self-curing type that presented the less misfit.
