Abstract – MODIFIED IMPRESSION TECHNIQUE FOR MAXILLARY FLABBY RIDGE

ABSTRACT:
Fibrous or flabby ridge is a mobile or extremely resilient alveolar ridge which becomes displaceable due to fibrous tissue deposition. It is more prevelant in anterior maxillary region. Conventional impression making leads to compression of the flabby rigde which tends to recoil and result in inadequate support, stability and retention of complete denture. This article presents a case report of modified impression technique for managing flabby tissue in anterior maxillary region which helped in recording flabby tissue with minimal displacement and hence enhanced the stability, support and retention of the denture.
