Key words: Survey, Concepts, Techniques, Postpalatal seal.
7 The postpalatal seal (PPS) area has been deuned as the soft tissue area at or beyond the junction of the hard and soft palates on which pressure, within physiological limits, can be applied by complete denture prosthesis to aid in retention.
Educational surveys have also been conducted to determine the postpalatal seal in complete denture12.
Keeping this in mind, as well as the fact that no past attempt for investigating the various aspects pertaining to postpalatal seal, in terms of concepts and techniques used in the various dental colleges in the country, the present study was designed to report about the diversity of the concepts and techniques that are employed for establishing postpalatal seal in com-plete denture.
The survey comprised 7 multiple-choice questions and each respondent had to select appropriately by putting tick mark responses that they were applying in routine for establishing postpalatal seal.
