Abstract

Traditional complete denture prosthesis imparts several problems such as poor retention, insufficient stability, denture sores, with severe pain, and discomfort, resulting in mastication, speech, nutritional and functional defects over a period of time. In order to overcome this difficulty, Biofunctional prosthetic system (BPS) is designed to enhance satisfaction, comfort, function and aesthetic to the patient. Furthermore, BPS also required fewer visits for the patientsas it follows a simple, standardized system for fabricating complete dentures thus minimizing the appointment time, with better aesthetic outcome. Literature studies, clinical trials and case reports focusing on advantagesof biofunctional prosthetic system in comparison to conventional complete dentures were published frequently. In accordance with this, the present review was carried out to briefly elaborate various aspects of BPS in prosthetic set-up based on the available literature with special emphasis on clinical consideration associated with its rehabilitation practice. Based on several observations, we conclude BPS as a superior technique in complete denture fabrication owing to its enhanced esthetics, form, function and comfort from a patient's perspective than the conventional one and increased patients Oral Health Quality of Life. (OHQoL). Nonetheless, further extensive research, clinical trials and long-term follow up studies on treatment outcomes are required to establish the superiority of BPS technique in prosthetic full mouth rehabilitation.
