Introduction. As de van stated “ meet the mind of the patient before meeting the mouth of the patient” therefore it is clear that opinions and attitudes will always influence the outcome of the treatment(1). In prosthodontics the literature is almost full with studies of patients among complete denture wearers (2). . Objective. To evaluate the primary and secondary needs of the patient undergoing cd rehabilitation and correlating it with acceptance of the treatment.. Material and method. A questionnaire was given to the patient before and after the treatment to evaluate their needs from the treatment. . Result. It was clearly evident from the study that the satisfaction levels to the complete denture prosthesis was dependent on the esthetics and there was marked migration seen from mastication to esthetics by the patients both male and females who participated in the study.. Conclusion. It was evident from the study that females are more concerned for the esthetics than the mastication than their male counterparts and the acceptance was more to the treatment. .
