PURPOSE:

To compare and analyze the effect of unanatomic and long centric complete occlusal denture on the satisfaction of edentulous patients and mastication.

METHODS:

Sixty edentulous patients with severe resorption of residual ridge were treated with unanatomic occlusal and long centric occlusal complete dentures. One month and three months after wearing dentures, the satisfaction evaluation from edentulous patients for the different complete dentures was analyzed, and the masticatory stroke was tested, the masticatory efficiency of the two complete dentures was detected by light absorption method. SPSS 11.0 software package was used for data analysis.

RESULTS:

Compared with unanatomic occlusal dentures, appearance, pronunciation and comfort of long centric occlusal denture wearers were not significantly different for one and three months (P>0.05). But the masticatory function of long centric occlusal denture wearers was significantly better than anatomic occlusal denture wearers (P<0.05).

CONCLUSIONS:

Modified occlusion is feasible for restoration of masticatory efficiency of edentulous patients using long centric occlusal complete dentures, and they are more acceptable by edentulous patients with severe resorption of residual ridge.
