The necessity and timing of postplacement aftercare for patients receiving removable prostheses were investigated. Three hundred patients were divided into categories based on the types of prostheses constructed and the nature of follow-up instructions given. The majority of the patients required postplacement follow-up, however, 90% of the patients were satisfied with their prostheses after the second adjustment. Although the timing of aftercare varied, it is suggested that the first appointment be during days 2 through 5, and that the second appointment fall on days 8 through 10 following presentation of the prosthesis.
