Acrylic Obturator Prosthesis in Maxillary Defects - Is an Improvement After Denture Adhesive Application?


Abstract:
adhesives over acrylic classic prosthesis, but the literature lacks in comparative studies that investigate the effects and advantages of denture adhesives on obturator prosthesis performance. The hypothesis for this study was that the use of the denture adhesive would improve both wearing and efficiency on obturator prosthesis. We evaluated the clinical behaviour of six acrylic obturator prosthesis made on various maxillary defects, with and without a denture adhesive. The adhesive was applied on the prosthesis as recommended by the manufacturers. Patients used the adhesive for 24 hours and, through a questionnaire, they evaluated (comparative with and without adhesive) There are many studies in the literature regarding the effect of denture the following aspects: prosthesis retention, duration of retention, masticatory efficacy, cleansing of dentures, cleansing of gums. The clinical retention of the dentures was correlated to Modified Kapur Index Scale (MKIS) for denture supporting tissues.
