Reducing the risk of failure in complete denture patients (2012)

Author(s): Critchlow S, Ellis J, Field J

    Abstract: This paper aims to review the factors associated with an increased risk of failure in complete denture patients, based on the strength of the available evidence base. These include accuracy of jaw relations, a poorly formed mandibular ridge, poor quality dentures and patient neuroticism. Clinical strategies for overcoming these issues are described with particular reference to impression making and jaw relations.
