Recognising Denture Problems in Patients
Could your patients have problems with their dentures?
Recognising denture problems in patients is not always simple. British Society of Prosthodontics (BSSPD) guidelines recommend that:1
- Adjustments should be made to dentures in light of the patient’s experiences or complaints
- Denture bearing areas should be examined for trauma even in the absence of patient complaints
- The importance of attending regular appointments for review should be explained to the patient
