The chewing ability of completely edentulous patients is compromised due to edentulous state. Hence there is lack of nutrients in such patients. Chewing has direct influence on the body's nutrients, maintenance of the body composition and the general health of patients. Patients with chewing inability are affected to a greater extent. The conventional method for treating edentulous patients is to rehabilitate them with conventional complete dentures. However, advances in implant dentistry have allowed a shift from conventional complete denture to implant-supported overdenture for rehabilitation of edentulous patients and this improves the overall chewing efficiency and the general health. The purpose of this review is to compare the chewing efficiency, masticatory bite force, nutritional status and patient satisfaction among patients wearing complete denture and implant retained overdentures.

Keywords : Chewing Ability, Completely Edndulous Patients, Chewing Efficiency.
