Case report: management of the flabby ridge: re-visiting the principles of complete denture construction.
Optional Fields
Displaceable tissue on edentulous ridges may present a considerable clinical challenge to dental practitioners when providing complete dentures. Surgical excision techniques or use of dental implants has provided clinicians with methods of addressing this particular difficulty. However careful consideration and application of the principles of complete denture construction can provide a less invasive and less complex form of treatment. This article describes one such clinical scenario, and demonstrates the use of a suitable impression technique that is based on successful manipulation of the thermoplastic nature of the impression material.
