Abstract:

Conventional complete denture therapy is the most extensively used form of treatment for replacement of missing dentition. Patient satisfaction plays a major role in determining the success during treatment procedures. It helps in assessment of certain psychological traits and the impact of complete denture prostheses on daily living. This study was done to evaluate the relationship between patient satisfaction and the newly constructed denture prostheses, as it would indicate the degree of success of the treatment given.
