Purpose: The purpose of the study is to quantify occlusal errors seen, during the processing of complete denture.
Material and Methods: Maxillary and mandibular complete dentures were fabricated for 30 subjects. Anterior and posterior markings were made on articulator and the distance was measured from these points before and after processing of complete dentures. Occlusal errors following processing of complete dentures was determined by subjecting the values obtained to statistical analysis using paired t-test.
Results: The results indicated the existence of discrepant amount of occlusal errors following processing of complete denture and statistical test applied was paired t-test, p-values obtained are, p=0.00 anterior reference markings and p=0.006 for posterior reference markings (p = 0.001 highly significant).
Conclusion: The processing errors are inevitable. Hence for patient comfort, laboratory remounting is an important procedure that needs to be followed as a regular step after processing of each and every denture.
