Mucosal inserts increase the retention of any well-made denture but should not be attempted as a substitute for good prosthetic technique. They are especially useful with the trauma or cancer patient where functional anatomy has been altered. Final results of the patient's removable prosthesis will depend on mechanical, anatomical and psychological factors. The mucosal insert denture can satisfy the expectations of many of these patients, if the patients are informed and managed properly.
