The management of resorbed mandibular ridge and the flabby ridge has always been a challenge for prosthodontist. Many patients cannot be suitable for implant denture therapy. Hence, in such patients to use a technique with routinely used impression materials becomes a justified option. Hence, the stability of denture in such patients becomes a distinguishable factor between failure and success. This article outlines a combination of different impression materials to improve denture stability in atrophied mandibular ridge, and management of flabby tissue keeping in mind further ridge resorption.
