The aim of this study was to examine the contribution of the palate to denture base support. Four subjects with tooth- or implant-supported maxillary overdentures were enrolled. Recordings (strain values converted to load values) were performed using miniature strain gauges and force transducers for the following conditions: metal framework only (A), denture base with full palatal coverage (B), and denture base without palatal coverage (C). The palatal-supporting ratio (PSR) was calculated using the equation PSR = (B C) / A. The PSR values were less than 10% in all subjects, suggesting that the palate plays a minimal role in denture base support. Int J Prosthodont 2014;27:328330. doi: 10.11607/ijp.3804
