  • knowledge of removable partial denture wearers on denture hygiene
    British Dental Journal, 2013
    Co-Authors: Paul J Milward, Deepti Katechia, Maria Zeta Morgan

    Abstract:

    Background Regular good denture hygiene by individuals with removable partial dentures (RPDs) is an important component of oral health and in the prevention of further dental problems. These individuals should be provided with advice on the importance of denture care and be aware of this information. Aim To establish deficiencies in patient knowledge surrounding denture hygiene by RPD wearers. Methodology The study was undertaken as an Audit. Data was collected from April 2012 to October 2012 via a questionnaire completed by 196 RPD wearers attending as patients at the University Dental Hospital Wales and the dental units at St David’s Hospital and Cynon Valley Hospital. The Audit Criterion was patients with RPDs should have knowledge of denture hygiene, with the standard set at 100%. Results While 91.8% of participants stated they were provided with instructions on denture hygiene when provided with their current prosthesis, 60.2% were shown to have less than an appropriate level of denture cleanliness, with 9.2% reporting that they slept wearing their prosthesis. Conclusion The Audit Criterion and standard set were not achieved. A lack of knowledge surrounding denture hygiene was demonstrated among participants. As a part of the Audit process the health education of RPD wearers’ hygiene needs to be improved and awareness levels of the whole dental team needs to be raised. All partial dentures should receive information and regular reinforcement of key dental hygiene messages.

    Abstract:

    Reports that only 60% of partial denture wearers demonstrated appropriate levels of denture cleanliness. Informs that out of 44% of the participants who had further additions to their partial dentures only 10% had good levels of denture cleanliness. Proposes the need for dentists to increase the awareness of the importance of denture hygiene for partial denture wearers and their future oral health.
