ABSTRACT:Severely resorbed ridges and increased lip length provides challenge to achieve adequate retention, stability and support for the success of complete denture. In such cases Implant supported dentures can be promising alternative to conventional dentures. However, it is not always possible to provide patients with implant treatment as geriatric patients with systemic illness and economic constrains, possess reluctance for a long duration of treatment procedure and unwillingness for any kind of surgical procedure. Hence the best way is to rehabilitate them in conventional way. Light weight hollow dentures can prove to be an effective alternative to conventional denture for achieving optimum results. The aim of this review is to assess the role of maxillary hollow denture in improving the retention and stability in compromised cases based on the data published in the literature.
