AUTHOR(S): Dr. Abrar Ahmad Hakeem, Dr. Shabir Ahmad Shah, Dr. Qazi Shazana Nazir, Dr. Sandeep Kour Bali and Dr. Shazia Mir
ABSTRACT:Flabby ridge is a common clinical finding affecting the alveolar ridges of the maxillary or mandibular arches. The anterior region of maxilla is the most affected area in edentulous patients. Dentures on flabby ridges have compromised stability, support, and retention unless adequate measures for its management are employed. Methods applied for flabby ridge management, include surgical removal, ridge augmentation, special impression techniques, balanced distribution of occlusal loads and implant therapy. Special impressions often involve window technique for static impression of flabby area, which present multiple challenges. The purpose of this case report is to present a window technique for the impression of anterior maxillary flabby tissues with the use of monophase polyvinyl siloxane impression material.
