Behavioral problems are commonly associated with complete denture therapy. There are easily satisfied patients at one end, while at the other end are patients who become office fixtures, complaining of excessive discomfort, poor function and visit repeatedly for adjustments. Some patients are maladaptive because neurological or neuromuscular deficits preclude successful wearing of dentures. Others are emotionally maladaptive. For these patients, effective verbal and nonverbal communication in the form of an iatrosedative interview is significant in maximizing an effective doctor/patient relationship and minimizing the maladaptive response.
