Gum fit denture: Dentures befitting labial undercut to improve esthetics in anterior maxilla
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Greeshma Sunny, Dr. Gautam Shetty and Dr. Shreya Bukkapatnam
ABSTRACT:In our day to day practice we come across patients who present with different forms of residual ridges i.e well formed ridges, severely resorbed or bulbous ridges. An excessively bulky maxillary ridge accompanied by a labial undercut and an inclined pre maxilla can compromise the facial esthetics. The thickness of the labial flange can further compromise the labial fullness and result in an unesthetic maxillary denture. So, in such clinical situations an unconventional approach may be considered for the fabrication of complete denture. This case report thus, describes a simple, economical, conservative and non-surgical treatment modality for fabrication of denture in a patient with a bulky maxillary ridge with a prominent labial undercut to enhance the facial esthetics of the patient.
