Background: The difference in the adaptation of denture bases processed from heat cure acrylic, light cure acrylicand nylon materials and the effect of artificial accelerated aging (thermal cycling and pH) on the adaptation wasstudied.Materials and methods: One hundred eighty stone cast were prepared and assigned into 3 main groups accordingto the denture base material that processed on them(heat cure, light cure, nylon), each denture base and its castwas sectioned at posterior palatal border and the gap between the denture base and the cast was measured usingdigital microscope. Half of each group exposed to thermal cycling (2000 cycle) between (5 C-55 C ) 30 second ineach bath then the adaptation was evaluated again. All denture bases were stored in artificial saliva of different pH(5.7, 7,8.3) at 37 C for 30 days, then the adaptation was measured again.Results and discussions: The results showed that the adaptation of heat cure acrylic was better than light cure andnylon before and after aging process. The nylon showed the poorest adaptation. Thermal cycling decreases theadaptation of all denture bases. Variation of pH effected the adaptation of heat cure and light cure denture basesand did not affect the adaptation of nylon
