During the three-dimensional (3D) printing process of a dental prosthesis, using photopolymer resin, partially polymerized resin is further cured through the postcuring process that proceeds after the printing, which improves the stability of the printed product. The mechanical properties of the end product are known to be poor if the postcuring time is insufficient. Therefore, this study evaluated the effect of the postcuring time of the 3D-printed denture base on its dimensional stability, according to the aging period. The 3D prints were processed after designing maxillary and mandibular denture bases, and after the following postcuring times were applied: no postcuring, and 5, 15, 30, and 60 min. The dimensional stability change of the denture base was evaluated and analyzed for 28 days after the postcuring process. The trueness analysis indicated that the mandibular denture base had lower output accuracy than the maxillary denture base, and the dimensional stability change increased as postcuring progressed. In the no postcuring group for the mandible, the error value was 201.1 ± 5.5 µm (mean ± standard deviation) after 28 days, whereas it was 125.7 ± 13.0 µm in the 60 min postcuring group. For both the maxilla and the mandible, shorter postcuring times induced larger dimensional stability changes during the aging process. These findings indicate that in order to manufacture a denture base with dimensional stability, a sufficient postcuring process is required during the processing stage.
