    Aim: The aim of the present study is to evaluate patient satisfaction with esthetics, chewing ability, denture retention, and speech comfort while wearing dentures. This study was done using a questionnaire. Background: Patient’s satisfaction or dissatisfaction with their partial dentures is an important part of the treatment. Patients are sometimes not satisfied with the constructions which are best, according to the therapist’s assessment. The background of this study was to evaluate patient’s satisfaction with their partial dentures. Methodology: A total of 27 patients were reviewed using a questionnaire, of which 14 patients (8 male and 6 female) responded. Subjects’ age, gender, occupation and any systemic diseases (if present), and age of the present dentures and presence of prosthetic complications were recorded. Results: The complication rates of the removable partial dentures (RPD) patients exceed the satisfactory rates in most of the patients reviewed. Conclusion: From the present study, it is found that the most frequently encountered complication in the patients reviewed in this study is the prevalence of irritating sensation due to the dentures and also found that the patients prefer fixed partial dentures when compared to RPD.
