A total of 249 complete denture wearers were examined from a geriatric population of 610 patients in seven institutions in four different countries. The evaluation of denture quality was made by the patients' opinions and the examiners rankings with a questionnaire on interocclusal distance, occlusal function, extension, stability, comfort, and esthetics of the dentures. At each of the surveyed institutions, the patients consistently considered their dentures better than did the examiners and the maxillary dentures were rated better that the mandibular dentures by the clinicians and by the patients.
