Edentulous persons are not able to masticate food properly. Over a long period of time these individuals develop dyspepsia related symptoms. But when the missing teeth are replaced, the dyspepsia symptoms disappear. The purpose of the study was to involve medical practitioners and make them aware of seeking dental consultation for patients suffering from dyspepsia, when no other etiology could be established.
