Every human being aspires to look beautiful and will continue to do so even when the odds are against them as they get older. Nowadays almost every edentulous patient demands a lot on the esthetics front, at least with hope for having to overcome their sunken/hollow cheek, for that slight bit of joy having to reminisce their past, when they were young and beautiful. By the use of the maxillary cheek plumpers, some support can be provided to the cheek and thereby the esthetics as well, but having to do so will be at the cost of the discomfort which the patient endures due to its added weight. This article describes the combination of Hollow Denture along with Cheek Plumper techniques, to provide more comfort to the patients, while it being non-invasive & cost-effective for the benefit of all kinds of people, as it is within every person’s rights to look wrinkleless & attractive.
Clinical Implication: This technique enables the elderly and those with poor manual dexterity by completely removing any effort which needs to be put in as there is no need for attachments & enhancing the facial esthetics while remaining cost-effective. It is a quick non-invasive procedure to provide better esthetics to the discouraged/discomfiture patients, without causing much difficulty in usage on a day to day life.
