The aim of the study is to assess the Prosthodontic status and needs with respect to age, gender, educational level and socio-economic status in urban areas of Trans- Varuna region. An on-site survey was conducted in Varanasi urban region between June 2016 to December 2016. Data was acquired by means of interview and clinical examination and was statistically analysed using chi-square test. A total of 5,631 participants were enrolled for the study. Prosthodontic treatment needs were maximum in females and in the age group of 46-60 years.
