Abstract

Eight elderly patients who were required to wear full or partial denture participated in this study (mean age: 81.1 years). The subjects were six patients with denture and two patients without denture at the first visit.<BR>Hematological, immunological (NK activity, T lymphocyte subset CD 4 and CD 8) and biological analyses were made for all patients. Patients removed their denture for 10 days, and analysis was done three times:(A) immediately before removal, (B) on the final day of removal, and (C) 10 days after wearing the denture. Patients without denture were examined two times:(B) immediately before wearing newly-made denture, and (C) after wearing the denture for enough time to adjust it. The results were compared between A and B (n = 6), and B and C (n=8), respectively (paired Wilcoxon's test, p<0.05).<BR>There was a significant decrease in CD 4/CD 8 ratio from A to B, and there was a significant increase in CD 4/CD 8 ratio from B to C. Thus the above suggested that the presence of denture should influence the parameters and there should be a relationship between masticatory function and immune system.
