den·ture base

1. that part of a denture which rests on the oral mucosa and to which teeth are attached;
2. that part of a complete or partial denture that rests on the basal seat and to which teeth are attached.

denture base

the part of a denture that covers the soft tissue of the mouth. It is commonly made of resin or a combination of resins and metal to which artificial teeth are attached. Also called saddle.

Collection of the demographic data of the participants was followed by some technical questions to identify the possible errors accountable for teeth-denture base interface failure like the type of teeth and denture base materials used; chemical/mechanical modifications of ridge lap surface area (RLSA) of teeth; the presence of possible contaminants at the RLSA of acrylic teeth and their effective removal and some questions regarding acrylic denture packing and curing stages to assess technician's expertise.
Since most complete dentures nowadays are made with acrylic resin teeth with poly methylmetha acrylate (PMMA) resin for the denture base, it is always better to follow a cleaning method in which strong abrasive action is not present [2,5].
However, other factors may also be associated: denture trauma due to the continuous wearing of dentures, poor oral and dental hygiene, allergic reactions to denture base materials such as residual monomers, dietary factors such as resultant hematological and nutritional deficiencies, infections such as Candida infections, microbial factors, systemic factors such as diabetes mellitus and immunodeficiency, and miscellaneous factors such as thermal stoppage below the denture, age of the denture, smoking, various types of irradiation, dryness of the mouth, medications, and reduced saliva flow (1-8, 10-13, 15-21).
