Abstract: Oral stereognosis has been reported to play an important role in predicting the success of complete dentures. In this study, the oral stereognostic ability of 30 edentulous subjects was evaluated and the mean score was 8.533 (± 3.115). The same subjects were provided with complete dentures. A questionnaire was completed by the subjects to aid in the subjective evaluation of denture performance with respect to retention and stability, mastication and speech. Based on the subjective denture performance, they were grouped into 3 categories: good, fair and poor. The study indicated a significant relationship between the mean stereognostic score and subjective performance in relation to retention and stability (P = 0.0077), mastication (P = 0.0007) and speech (P = 0.0001).
