AUTHOR(S): Dr. Aditi Sharma and Dr. Asra Tabassum
ABSTRACT:Background: The prevalence of use of the all-acrylic RPD among adults is very high as all-acrylic RPD is more affordable and easier to fabricate. However, some disadvantages of using the all-acrylic resin dentures are increased risk of developing caries, gingivitis and periodontal disease relative to other RPD frameworks. Aim of the study: To evaluate patient satisfaction for retention, masticatory efficacy, aesthetics and comfort for Removable Partial denture. Materials and methods: The present study was conducted in the department of prosthodontics of the dental institution. For the study sample, we contacted 50 patients from the previous medical records of 5 years who got treatment for partially edentulous ridge with removable partial denture. The patients were recalled. On the day of reporting at department, the patients were asked to fill up a questionnaire. The acceptance of RPD was marked as excellent, good or bad. Results: We observed that majority of patients reported excellent aesthetics, comfort, hygiene, masticatory efficacy and retention. 11 patients in total reported bad experience with Removable partial denture. Conclusion: The treatment for partially edentulous ridge with Removable partial denture is satisfactory for majority of cases. Only few cases reported to be having bad experience with RPD.
