AUTHOR(S): Marilyn Tereza Rodrigues, Shreya Bukkapatnam and Babashankar Alva
ABSTRACT:Facial aesthetics in complete denture has become an integral part of dental rehabilitation. Ageing leads to bone resorption and loss of soft tissue elasticity causing sunken or hollow cheeks. Conventional complete dentures give support to the circum oral musculature but do not help much with the cheek muscles.
