A hollow complete denture using Thermocol: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Renu Gupta, Dr. RP Luthra and Dr. Rajender Singh
ABSTRACT:The success of a complete denture relies on the principles of retention, stability and support. The prosthodontist’s skill lies in applying these principles efficiently in critical situations. Severely resorbed maxillary edentulous ridges that are narrow and constricted with increased inter ridge space provide decreased support, retention and stability. The consequent weight of the processed denture only compromises them further. This article describes a case report of an edentulous patient with resorbed ridges where a simplified technique of fabricating a light weight maxillary complete denture was used for preservation of denture bearing areas.
