Abstract


Background: The most used denture base materials is heat cured acrylic resin. The disadvantages of acrylic resin are easy to absorb water and porosity that can increase surface roughness. The surface roughness can facilitate the attachment of microorganisms and accumulation of plaque. The cleansing of mechanical denture use electric toothbrush and denture cleanser paste. This paste uses natural materials from robusta coffee beans that decrease surface roughness. Objective: To determine the effectivity of robusta coffee beans paste as a denture cleanser to the surface roughness of heat cured acrylic resin.  Methods: This study was an experimental laboratory with the research design the post test only  control group design. Total sample of 36 samples in size (65 x 10 x 2,5) mm which consisted of 4 groups: control group without brushing, group A  brushed with electric toothbrush and a placebo paste, group B brushed with electric toothbrush and robusta coffee beans paste 25%, and group C  brushed with electric toothbrush and robusta coffee beans paste 50%. Brushing was done for 22 minutes, then measured the surface roughness of dentures. Results and Conclusions: Robusta coffee bean paste was less effective as a denture cleanser agent against the surface roughness of the heat cured acrylic resin. Robusta coffee beans paste 50% can be used as a denture cleanser.
