Figure 7: Patient showing good adaptation to definitive prostheses.

Mentions: The patient adapted to the definitive dentures with more ease than to the trial dentures. His mastication and speech with the dentures were improved significantly. He was also satisfied with his appearance with the dentures (Fig. 6). Although concerns of his wearing and maintaining the dentures himself still existed because of his young age, good denture stability, retention, and proper patient education indicated that he showed good adaptation to wearing dentures (Fig. 7).
