Dr. Anshul Arora, Dr. Ashtha Arya

Abstract


Rehabilitation of large edentulous space in the anterior maxilla presents many challenges. Undercut may develop at the time of extraction if extraction sockets are not compressed adequately. The buccal undercut of the maxillary tuberosity, together with the reduced width of the buccal vestibule can complicate denture fabrication..This clinical report describes an alternate denture design in which optimal flange height and thickness can be achieved in situations where patient has anterior undercut in maxilla and reduced vestibular width
