Abstract: 

Introduction: The major problems in patients treated with complete dentures are pathologic lesions caused by prosthetic dentures, retention, and stability, looseness of the prosthesis, prosthesis intolerance, chewing problems, speaking and esthetic problems, and food accumulation under the dentures. The purpose of this study was to assess different problems of denture prosthesis in some patients referred to the Mashhad Dental School in 2005.
Materials & Methods: In this descriptive cross sectional study, 80 patients were selected. A questionnaire including questions about patients’ past medical history, complaints and symptoms leading to dissatisfaction with complete denture prosthesis was given to each patient. The statistical tests used to investigate differences between groups were the Chisquare and Fisher's exact test.
Results: The highest percentage of pain caused by dentures was detected during eating. Food accumulation under the denture was the most common complaint. The highest percentage of partial tissue contact was found in the mandible base, which might have been due to shortness of the denture's borders. Statistical analysis showed that there was no significant difference in the complaints’ occurrence either between males and females or patients' medical conditions. There was a significant relationship between errors relating to maxillary overextension of denture bases and a patient's mucosa ulceration (P=0.035); and between errors relating to retention and the patient's complain to loose dentures in the mandible (P<0.001).
Conclusion: Considering the limitation of this study, it can be concluded that the most common complaints of patients were related to food accumulation under the denture bases, the instability of the denture, esthetic problems and incorrect height of the occlusal plane.
