Share Abstract:

Attitudes to identification of dentures: The patients’ perspective


Pages: 267-270
PMID: 8362038

The importance of placing identification marks on dentures has long been acknowledged by the dental profession. More recently, following the fatalities at the Bradford City, England, football club fire, the need for marking dentures has been made more public. This paper outlines the different types of marking systems available and describes a survey of denture wearers to investigate their attitude toward the placement of identification marks on dentures. Results show that few dentures are marked at manufacture but that wearers are in favor of having their name on their denture. Of the 63 subjects sampled, 93.5% did not know that identification marks could be placed on dentures. The profession must be encouraged to routinely label all dentures at manufacture.
