The recommendations, offered by us, as for the use of removable dentures in patients with acantholytic pemphigus using a multicomponent remedy based on chitosan are described in the article to provide an analgesic and wound-healing effect in patients with acantholytic damage of the prosthetic bed tissues.

Objective of the study. To improve the conditions for the use of removable dentures for acantholytic pemphigus patients.

Materials and methods. The study involved 56 patients with acantholytic pemphigus, aged 45 to 63 years old, who were divided into 2 clinical groups. The main group used removable dentures according to our recommendations; the comparison group used removable dentures in accordance with generally accepted recommendations. Methods for determining the intensity of the pain syndrome and the subjective responses of patients about the state of health were used to evaluate the ultimate results.

Results of the research and their discussion. Improvement of general state according to the data of a subjective survey in the main group was observed in 20 patients, which was 71.42% during the 7th day; and in 27 patients during the 14th day, which was 96.42%. In the comparison group, patients who subjectively felt better were 35.71% during the 7th day and 57.14% during the 14th day, respectively.

Conclusions. The results of the study confirm the necessity to develop, implement and improve the recommendations for the inclusion into the protocol of the use of removable orthopedic structures of dentures in patients with acantholytic lesions of the prosthetic bed tissues.
