Abstract: Statement of the problem: Denture cleansing agents are commonly used to clean the denture surfaces contaminated with plaque and food debris. However, their effect in inducing surface roughness over metal denture bases needs to be studied further. Aim: To evaluate the effect of denture cleansers in inducing surface roughness in cobalt-chromium alloys. Materials and Methods: Twenty cobalt-chromium specimens of dimensions 10x10x1mm were cast and immersed in four experimental denture cleansers for a period of one week. Group 1: 0.12% chlorhexidine based denture cleanser, Group 2: NaOCl based denture cleanser, Group 3: Distilled water, Group 4: Sodium perborate monohydrate based denture cleanser. The specimens were assessed for surface roughness using a non-contact profilometer and the surface roughness values were expressed as ‘Ra’ respectively. Results: The mean surface roughness observed for Group 1=1.44±0.24, Group 2=3.31±0.71, Group 3= 1.48±0.38, Group 4= 2.38±0.11 respectively. ANOVA showed statistically very high difference between the experimental denture cleansers F=21.311 and p value <0.0001. Conclusion: Sodium hypochlorite based denture cleansers caused maximum surface roughness followed by sodium perborate and chlorhexidine based denture cleansers.
