But water storage of denture base acrylic resins can lead to reduction of residual methyl methacrylate resins by diffusion into water.24 Therefore, it is suggested that one of the methods for reducing the monomer release is storing the denture and acrylic appliance in water for 24 hours before insertion in patients' mouth.
