    Replacement of missing teeth has been developing over the years with respect to techniques and materials which have improved over time through rehabilitation with a removable and fixed prosthesis. Fixed prosthesis such as fixed partial dentures and implants has been a more preferred mode of treatment due to higher patient satisfaction and comfort of use. Yet, the presence of compromised bone, less than ideal abutments for supporting fixed prosthesis, and economic affordability for patients of low socioeconomic status makes removable partial dentures the alternative treatment option in rural areas of developing countries. Success of treatment with removable partial dentures is greatly dependent on patient satisfaction and acceptance. The mismatch between the patient expectation of dentures and fulfillment of expectation after treatment should be bridged for better treatment outcome. This study compares the expectation of patients regarding the denture before insertion and its fulfillment at the time of insertion, 1 week and 1 month after insertion.
