During complete secondary adentia (edentia), efficacy of the functional measurement conducted via individual spoon was investigated in clinical phase II (of trials) of orthopedic treatment with full dentures of patients. 5 Herbs test in the upper jaw and 7 Herbs test in the lower jaw had been applied to fit edges of the individual spoon made in clinical phase II of preparing full dentures with limits of prosthetic bed. Using the Herbs test, measurement had been taken by putting Kerr wax (correctional layer of crystalline-repine and A silicone measuring material) to the edges of the individual spoon fitted. After 1, as well 6 months, the day on which the full dentures were submitted, the patient was asked for performing functional activities that he/she can by wearing the denture into mouth after putting the correctional layer of A silicone measuring material with thickness of 2 mm inside it, until the measurement material would be polymerized. On the inner surface of the upper and lower denture base the correctional layer of the A-silicone-measured material had become very thin, almost 0.1 mm with curtain shape in alveolar ridges, in transition bumper of the upper denture, back 2/3 posterior palatal area and in transition bumper of the lower denture, and retromolar space with thickness of 2-4 mm, in some cases 4 to 6 mm. While we put such pressure on the measure, as if we accept that pressure loaded on denture field with its construction through performing different functions by the patient to whom we prepared the denture will be equal to the pressure put by us when taking measurement placing into (repine, correctional layer of polymerizing measuring material) the individual spoon. However, it is not possible to handle this with a spoon.
