Flabby tissue– revisited: Case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Monika Yadav, Dr. Charushila Sardar, Dr. Gaurang Mistry and Dr. Mayuri Bachhav
ABSTRACT:The success of complete denture is enhanced by achieving the objectives of impression making, that is preservation of underlying tissue, retention, stability, support and esthetics. Flabby tissue is a common clinical finding affecting the alveolar ridges of both mandibular or maxillary arches. The use of conventional impression techniques for recording flabby tissues can lead to unstable and unsatisfactory denture. But some modification in the impression techniques can record the flabby tissues in an undistorted form and thus help to fabricate a stable denture. The problem with conventional denture is rigidity of material which comes in contact with tissue surface, leading to uneven distribution of load. A liquid supported denture allows uniform stress distribution due to its flexible tissue surface and provides improved patient’s acceptance.
