Intervention

Patients having lower cobalt chromium distal extension saddle partial dentures made at Guy's Hospital will be randomised into two groups. One group will have altered cast impressions made at the appropriate stage, the other group will not. Fit of the resulting dentures will be judged in the mouth using an accepted method. The amount of adjustment, if any, will be noted. Numbers of acceptable and unacceptable dentures will be recorded. Three months after the dentures are fitted patients will be sent a self-administered questionnaire to be completed to determine usage of the dentures.

Added July 2008: the trial was stopped due to lack of funding.
