    Aim: The aim of the present study is to compare the oral health status of patients receiving removable temporary partial denture before and after the treatment. Materials and Methods: The study comprises totally 27 patients out of which 14 patients reported back, who were prepared to wear RPD (8 were males and 6 were females). Before prosthetic insertion, the periodontal parameters such as plaque indices, probing pocket depth, gingival indices, and mobility of the teeth which come into contact with the denture are recorded. Then, assessment after denture insertion on the periodontal parameters was carried out. Results: According to our result statistically, there is no significant difference in plaque accumulation and gingival indices in patients before and after prosthetic insertion in the patients examined. Conclusion: If the prosthesis is regularly checked and indicated procedure is performed, the forces transmitted to teeth do not seem to induce periodontal breakdown, and other impact of RPD on periodontal status can also be controlled.
