5. Prosthodontic Instruments

5-10. COMPLETE DENTURE INSERTION AND ADJUSTMENT

At the time of denture insertion, minor corrections in occlusion may be necessary or the denture base may require grinding and polishing. The patient is instructed in the use and care of his dentures and a subsequent appointment is given for observation and evaluation. Many Prosthodontic Sections have printed instructions for denture patients. If these are used, the dental specialist should have a copy ready for the patient. Figure 5-15 depicts instruments and materials used for insertion of complete dentures.
