Acrylic dentures are primarily a mixture of monomer and polymer resin.

Monomer components may include:

2) Stabilizers or inhibitors (hydrochinone)

Polymer components may include:
1) Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)
2) Initiators ( benzoyl peroxide,)

Reports have shown, some patients are allergic to red dye in acrylic dentures, causing auto-immune disease-like symptoms.  One such report comes from the British Dental Journal.
