Flangeless denture for prominent pre-maxilla: An excellent approach for restoring facial aesthetics: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Neha Hajira and Dr. Pulkit Khandelwal
ABSTRACT:Complete denture fabrication is always challenging when intraoral conditions are not favourable and ideal. Ridge contour varies with patients and excessive bulky maxillary ridges often have a compromised facial aesthetics as well as retention. Restoring labial fullness in a completely edentulous patient is a sensitive procedure. The thickness of the labial flange further compromises the labial fullness and results in an unaesthetic maxillary denture. Surgical intervention is required for such clinical conditions. However, sometimes patients are unwilling to undergo any surgical procedure and hence, to confront such perplexity, an unconventional approach is required in which a prosthetic modification is done in the complete denture. In this article, a nonsurgical treatment approach with flangeless denture was considered in patient with severely proclined premaxilla with severe maxillary labial undercuts in completely edentulous patient to achieve comprehensive rehabilitation with greatest regard to aesthetics.
