Removable prosthodontics may not be the hot favorite of most dentists. However, it is an important service we need to provide to our patients who may not be able to received implant restorations for various reasons.
The practice of removable prosthodontics needs patience and cooperation between the dentist, dental technologist and the patient. The level of satisfaction from providing the service can be poor when patients keep returning with different problems and we don’t seem to be able to get rid of the problems.
In this presentation, common problems, possible causes and solutions with dentures will be discussed. Some obvious but often overlooked areas will be brought back to attention.
We shall work towards having happy denture patients and finding the joy of working with these patients.
