Abstract

Background: Objectives In a double-blind, randomized clinical trial, the effect of recording face-bow curvature for complete denture recombination (CDs) on occlusal coefficients was evaluated. The fine fitting of dental casts on the articulator is one of the main procedures that allow the accurate analysis, diagnosis and treatment planning for edentulous patient. Some researchers believe that the face-bow is indispensable, as it brings with it many advantages.

Aim: The aim of the study is to assess the use of facebow and attitude toward it among prosthodontists in complete denture fabrication.

Material and Methods: A questionnaire consisting of 13 questions has been prepared to assess and evaluate knowledge about Facebow in the manufacture of complete dentures, along with additional information about the educational background and experience of prosthodontists, the attitude towards the facebow in the manufacture of complete dentures, patient satisfaction, and the reason behind not using the facebow and their knowledge About the jaw connection and occlusal adjustment in the manufacture of complete dentures. This questionnaire was sent to 149 clinics in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for prosthodontists regardless of age, gender and experience. The questionnaire has been emailed to you. Clear instructions were provided in the questionnaire form regarding the purpose of this survey and answering the questions. The name, contact details, mail ID, location and educational qualifications of the participants are kept strictly confidential.

Result: More than 90% of study subjects responded positively that, it is easy to use face bow. Among those who had used it in complete denture fabrication, the frequency of use was ‘ every time’ in 28.9%, often in 33.6% and seldom in 32.2% of subjects. If the study subjects did not use the face bow, the specified reasons by them were, ‘ it is time-and energy consuming’ (30.7%), and ‘ I do not think it is necessary (55.3%).

Conclusion: Within the limits of this study, it can be concluded that there is no significant difference in post-insertion visits for complete dentures made with and without the face record. The majority of prosthodontists believe that most of their patients were satisfied with their full dentures, rarely using a face-bow.
