Earlier in the book, mention was made of the importance of the muscular control of dentures. Success in this area, as in so many aspects of prosthetic dentistry, is dependent upon a three-person effort: the effort of the dentist in recognising the importance of the concept of muscular control as well as designing and prescribing the shapes of dentures to be compatible with the facial structure; the effort of the dental technician in following the prescription and translating it into correctly designed dentures; and the effort of the patient in, literally, getting to grips with the final product.
