ABSTRACT:Completely edentulous patients seek denture treatment to restore function and esthetics. Among various principles employed for the success of compete dentures, occlusion is one of the most important principle to be taken into consideration. Twenty completely edentulous patient’s (12 males and 8 females) with an average age of 65 years were included in the study. Consequently, patient satisfaction was evaluated with a standard 5 point Likert scale questionnaire, which included subjective parameters such as initial adaptability, post insertion problems, aesthetics, masticatory ability, speech, retention. Patient’s were asked to respond to question given in the questionnaire. Patients were reviewed after 24 hrs, then 3-4 months and yearly their after. Results have shown that patient’s had better intital adaptability with BBO dentures (p<0.05) and post-insertion problems where significant in CGO dentures (p<0.05). Study suggest that initial patient’s adaptation is better with balanced dentures when compared to canine guided dentures. Occlusal concept is not as crucial as often anticipated for long-term patient satisfaction.
