Abstract

Growth of the aging population will presumably increase the edentulous population in need of care with complete denture prostheses. The objective was to examine complete dentures in patients experiencing difficulties with their new prostheses, determine the most frequent complaints and their possible relation to age and gender. A total number of 200 complete denture wearer patients 126 females and 74 males participated in this study. A questionnaire was used to record the information which was taken directly from the patient when they attend the dental hospital. The information includes; age, gender, and types of the complaint. The study result revealed that; female number 126 ( 63%) was more than male 74 (37%), the number of the patients within the age group of above 60 years was 158( 79%), more than patients within the age group of 60 years,  42  (21%). The significant difference was found between gender and age groups (P < 0.05).   Pain 54 (27%) was the most common complaint of most of the patients in both genders, 23 (6.5%) for male and 31 (15.5%) for females. Loose Denture complaint had the lowest number among male 10 (5%), while complaint relating to mastication and eating had the lowest number of Females 18 (9%). No significant difference was found between gender and type of complaints (P> 0. 05). Speech problem had the highest incidence among patients within the age group of up to 60 years 11 (5.5%), while the highest incidence among patients within the age group of above 60 years, were pain complaint 45 (22.5%).  Complaint relating to eating and mastication had the lowest incidence among both age groups in total 34 (17%). No significant difference was found between age group and type of complain. Pain during insertion, removing, and wearing a complete denture had the highest prevalence, alongside speech problem in one age group only.  A significant difference was found between gender and age group. No statistically significant difference was found between gender and type of complaints.
