    Aim: The aim of the study is to evaluate the dimensional changes in denture base resins in different storage medium. Materials and Methods: The denture bases that were fabricated were stored into the storage environments which follow: Water, saline, artificial saliva, and vinegar for 2 weeks. Based on the number of mediums, each medium was allotted 5 dentures which was 20 dentures in total (n = 20). The dimensional changes of the dentures were recorded every 2 days for 2 weeks. Results: At the end of 2 weeks, the dentures stored in vinegar and saline contracted 0.052 mm and 0.040 mm, respectively, and the dentures which were stored in water and artificial saliva contracted 0.031 mm, 0.015 mm respectively. Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study, water and artificial saliva were the best mediums to be used.
