Could your patients have problems with their dentures?

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
