Background: The success or failure of the prosthesis is predictable not only by the residual ridge morphology, but also by patient’s satisfaction and attitude toward prosthodontic treatment. However, a patient’s satisfaction with dentures depends on several factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate different factors that can affect patient’s satisfaction with complete denture therapy.

Methods: The study was performed on forty edentulous patients referred to Prosthodontics department of Babol University of Medical Sciences. Socio-demographic, inter and extra oral clinical data were recorded before fabricating complete denture. The dentures were fabricated and delivered to patients based on standard procedures. Satisfaction of complete denture was measured using five Likert scale questionnaire in a two months follow up visit. The results were analyzed by SPSS v18 Software.

Results: The results of statistical analyses showed that the four factors of housing (p=0.043), treatment expectations (p=0.002), salivation (p=0.004) and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders (p=0.007) have an impact on patient’s satisfaction with complete removable prostheses.

Conclusion: Normal salivation, lack of TMJ disorders, logical treatment expectations of patients (patients’ lower levels of expectations before treatment), and type of housing (better economic status) can lead to higher levels of patient satisfaction with complete denture therapy.

Keywords: Complete dentures, Patient’s satisfaction, Oral health
