metadata.dc.description.resumo: Introduction: The association between the patient’s satisfaction and the occurrence of ulcers is important fortreatment predictability. The aim of this study was to evaluate the satisfaction level, fibromucosa integrity andrelation between these two factors in patients wearing mandibular Kennedy Class I removable partial dentures (RPD) and maxillary complete dentures at the Dental Department of Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN). Materials and Methods: The satisfaction of 52 patients was evaluated based on a questionnaire about currentprostheses, reasons for dissatisfaction, personal opinions about the prostheses, function and period 6 months to 1year after insertion of denture wearing. The fibromucosa integrity was based on the occurrence of ulcers after 24hours; 7, 15, 30 and 60 days, and 6 months. Results: A total of 90.4% of the patients (n=47) wore RPDs. Most of the patients (75%, n=39) reportedsatisfaction with RPDs; functional problems were the main reason for dissatisfaction (21.2%, n=11). The occurrenceof ulcers decreased over time. The ulcers were usually located in the region of fornix. Patients were classified intoClass III and IV according to the PDI classification. Fisher’s exact test was used to assess any association betweensatisfaction and fibromucosa integrity and no significant difference was found (p=0.275). Conclusions: The patients reported appropriate satisfaction with the Kennedy Class I RPDs after 6 months and1 year. There was no association between patients’ satisfaction and fibromucosa integrity.
