Pai UY, Reddy VS, Hosi RN - Case Rep Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: Complete denture fabrication in clinically compromised situations such as flabby ridges is a challenging task for the clinician.Accurate impressioning of these tissues plays a major role in ensuring a well-fitting prosthesis.In this paper, the authors have proposed a newer technique of impression making of the flabby tissues using a combination of readily available newer and older materials to ensure an accurate and easy impression of these tissues.

fig12: Completed mandibular impression with monophase polyvinylsiloxane material.

Mentions: The spacer wax was then removed and multiple holes were drilled in the region of the flabby tissue. Tray adhesive was applied. A final impression with monophase (medium body) (Aquasil LV Monophase, Dentsply Caulk) addition silicone was made (Figure 11). A monophase impression material was preferred as it has the desirable thixotropic property thereby ensuring adequate flow under pressure (Figure 12).
