Abstract

To improve the quality of the complete denture prosthesis, the bucco-lingual position of the artificial posterior teeth must be determined with consideration of the shape of the maxillary and mandibular residual ridge and the relationship between them. The arrangement of posterior artificial teeth should be considered not only for the denture stability but also for the avoidance of high pressure on the supporting structures. A two-dimensional finite element method program to investigate the statics for the contour of the complete denture and the residual ridge was developed. With this program, the effect of the bucco-lingual position of the artificial posterior teeth under occlusal force on the denture supporting bone could be investigated.
