Abstract

Introduction: Edentulous patients are still a matter of concern in countries like India due to less awareness of oral health care. Majority prefer complete denture for rehabilitation but here the primary challenge for a dentist is to satisfy the patient needs with successful management. The objective of the present study was to assess the post insertion complications encountered by complete denture patients and the level of satisfaction among them.
Materials and Methods: 100 elderly patients provided with a new set of complete denture for both arches were selected and examined. The data was collected as per the need of customized design questionnaire.
Results: Among post-insertion complaints from patients pain was the most common and almost present in more than 50% of patients. Difficulty in mastication and slurring of speech was also one of the major problems reported in denture wearers.
Conclusion: Patient satisfaction is a critical determinant in the success or failure of complete denture therapy. A Prosthodontist should communicate well to adjust the treatment and pace according to the need of patient. Behavioral therapy during the visits can have a positive effect in relieving anxiety and pain of the patient.

Keywords: Complete denture, Complications, Edentulous, Post-insertion, Satisfaction.
