Abstract

Wear of the occlusal surface of the denture is a sequela of complete denture which leads to loss of vertical dimension, loss of aesthetics and decrease in masticatory efficiency. Treatment modalities include change of denture set after a regular interval of 5 years, use of wear-resistant denture teeth that include wear-resistant resin or porcelain teeth, teeth with cast metal occlusal surface, and altering occlusal contact areas of denture teeth by use of silver amalgam fillings. A case report of a patient who had an increased tendency of occlusal wear was treated with an amalgam filling on the occlusal surface of denture teeth to increase wear resistance and to improve the masticatory
