Partial removable dentures are solutions commonly used in practice, whether it is acrylic or cast prosthesis. The aim of our study was to follow the evolution of the oral health status after the prostheses application.
The study was conducted over a two-year period and 65 patients with removable partial dentures were examined. They came themselves to the dental office for regular check-ups. Ten of the dentures were represented by metallic removable partial dentures and 40 were acrylic and 15 were elastic dentures.
We analized the oral hygiene, the decay incidence on the remaining teeth, the integrity of the elements of the prosthetic appliances, the aspect of the prosthetic base and of the oral mucosa on the edentulous area, the presence or the absence of the prosthetic stomatitis.
