Abstract

Flabby ridge is an excessive movable fibrous tissue, usually affecting the maxillary and mandibular edentulous ridges. It is a typical finding frequently observed in the maxillary anterior region. It usually occurs when natural teeth oppose an edentulous ridge or in long-term denture wearers. The management of flabby ridges includes surgical intervention, implant-retained prostheses, and conventional dentures fabricated using the modified impression technique. This case report depicts prosthodontic rehabilitation of patients with flabby ridges with two different impression modalities.
