A denture which is fabricated having adequate retention helps in patient's esthetic, physiological, and functional factors. The diagnostic assessment of the posterior palatal seal (PPS) and its placement is of pronounced significance. With an accurate recording of PPS area, we can establish the border seal in the posterior region of the maxillary denture.
