Abstract

A severely resorbed edentulous mandibular ridge, although fairly common in occurrence, its rehabilitation poses a challenging clinical situation for the prosthodontist. This has implored prosthodontists to seek for ingenious modifications in the conventional prosthetic forms so as to gratify patient’s expectations who have difficulty in wearing the mandibular complete dentures. Opting for the most suitable treatment modality mandates equilibrating the retention, stability and support triad to the fullest. Extreme resorption of the denture bearing tissue bed may lead to problems with achieving adequate levels of prosthetic satisfaction for the patient. One such entrusted treatment option, that has proven its mettle over tides of time in such a scenario, the hollow denture by virtue of its reduced excessive acrylic resin weight, efficaciously replaces the lost voluminous alveolar ridge in the increased inter-ridge space of the denture wearer.
