Abstract

Background/purpose: Destructive changes in maxillary edentulous patients with different mandibular occlusal schemes were first described many years ago. However, little is known about the causative factors for "combination syndrome". The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence and distribution of symptoms associated with combination syndrome among maxillary edentulous patients with different mandibular occlusal schemes.
