Recent advances in removable prosthodontics include biofunctional prosthetic system (BPS), which closely replicates aesthetics, comfort, functional, and phonetic aspects of natural dentition. With this background in mind, we conducted a systematic review to critically evaluate application of BPS over conventional dentures in removable prosthodontics. A search for full text articles with keywords “biofunctional prosthetic system (BPS)”, using PubMed search engine was carried out. Nine full text articles were eligible for final review and among them, three were of original research studies. All the original research articles were questionnaire-based studies. Six articles were reports of edentulous cases rehabilitated using BPS. The clinical findings and questionnaire responses of the studies revealed that the BPS performed better than the conventional dentures in most aspects of clinical evaluation. Moreover, the results showed that BPS systems outperformed conventional dentures in aesthetics, patient comfort, and function. Based on these findings, we concluded that the volume of literature available regarding the comparison of BPS to the conventional denture is insufficient to prove that it has a significant advantage over the conventional system. There is a definite need for larger number of clinical trials to establish the competitive superiority of BPS technique.
