AUTHOR(S): Dr. Rohit Kumar Singh, Dr. Nagesh Patil, Dr. Arjita Datta, Dr. Afroz Pattedar and Dr. Noora Khalid Billesh
ABSTRACT:Making of a final impression of flabby tissue with minimal or no displacement of tissue and better stability of the denture. A fibrous or flabby ridge is a mobile or extremely resilient alveolar ridge that becomes displaceable due to fibrous tissue deposition. Inadequate support, stability, and retention of a complete denture are the problems encountered in these patients. This article represents a review of different impression techniques for the management of flabby ridge in complete dentures. These impression techniques helped in recording flabby tissue with minimal displacement and hence enhanced the stability, support, and retention of the denture.
