Edentulism is a debilitating disease and an irreversible condition historically considered as one of the most important global oral health burden. Once the teeth are lost, ridge resorption is inevitable. An increase in rate of resorption might lead to decrease in denture stability and hence problems in accepting future prosthesis. The aim of this study was to assess the severity of resorption in edentulous subjects in west Uttar Pradesh.

Keywords: Edentulism, Resorption, Bone loss, Stability.
