  The human character of curiosity to explore new things is as old as history of mankind and when he starts exploring different streams of science, it creates wonders. So, let’s engineer dentistry. For a long time, Prosthodontics therapy focused mainly on the technical and clinical expertise required to fabricate complete dentures. This approach helped nurture the development of new ideas. The masticatory functions depend upon muscular forces and facility with which the patient is able to coordinate with these movements.But in complete denture wearers, computed tomographic study of masseter and medial pterygoid muscles have demonstrated greater atrophy and so is the reduced biting force. The sequele of this is impaired nutrition and this leads to poor and debilitated health in old age. The condition becomes worse in which motor control of muscle is affected as in Parkinsonism and Myasthenia Gravis (disorder which interfere with impulses and hence results in weak, easily fatigued muscle). Further more to attenuate problems of elderly debilitated patients in which denture wearing, its retention and mastication is almost impossible.
