Abstract

The increased inter-ridge space due to resorption of residual ridge and long upper lip length makes theprosthetic rehabilitation of such patient a great challenge for a prosthodontist. Retention and stability ofcomplete denture in cases of residual ridge resorption is usually reduced because of minimised denturebearing area. The maxillary denture fabricated in such patients are bulky in nature which furthercompromise its retention. So, in this case report a simplified technique is described for construction ofhollow maxillary denture which being light in weight further improves denture retention.

Key words: Hollow denture; Increased inter-ridge distance; Light weight denture; Residual ridgeresorption.
