Latent pathologic conditions arise as a result of the loss of teeth. Over a period of time, pathologic conditions may elicit detrimental alterations on the residual bone, oral mucosa, temporomandibular joints, masticatory muscles and nervous system. Pains in the orofacial areas may also be felt.
Comprehensive complete prosthodontic treatment requires thorough working knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, pathophysiology, radiology, microbiology, pharmacology, neurology, otorhinolaryngology, psychology, psychiatry, geriatrics and nuclear science.
Successful complete denture treatment is provided even more complex because scientific knowledge must be linked with professional skills and ability to teach and motivate the patient. The success of complete prosthodontic treatment will be determined by the patient’s ability to function with the complete dentures.
