Edentulous state causes disorders in chewing, esthetic, phonetic, temporomandibular
joint, and the vinicity tissue. As dental students, they must have to replace their teeth
with denture. This study aimed to know the reason why dental students of Hasanuddin
University didn’t use denture. This descriptive study involved 30 samples based on
purposive sampling technique. Data was obtained from questionnaire and
examination of oral cavity. The result showed that 23 samples wanted to use denture,
and 26 samples said that the denture was necessary. The reasons of not using denture
were as follows: no time, not disturbed, expensive, fear, and just for orthodontic
treatment. It can be concluded that most respondents had known the importance of
using denture. However, the behavior of using denture had not yet existed because of
external and internal factor. For that, it is suggested to socialize the imprtance of
using denture.
