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.

fig13: Maxillary custom tray with wax spacer removed.

Mentions: The maxillary borders were recorded by selective pressure impression technique using green stick compound (Figure 13). The relief wax was removed and multiple holes were drilled in the “supporting tray (Figure 14).” Placement of multiple relief holes was done to ensure prevention of pressure build-up in the flabby area thereby leading to inadvertent tissue compression. Tray adhesive was applied. Similar to the lower impression a monophase impression of addition silicone was made (Figure 15).
