Abstract

The performance of a complete denture is often a reflection of its support and retention of the underlying
hard and soft tissues. If the superficial aspect of alveolar ridge is compressible more than 2mm, this will
result in a mobile soft tissue (flabby tissues). This occurs when hyperplastic soft tissue replaces the alveolar
bone. During conventional impression procedures, the flabby tissues are compressed and will later tend
to recoil and dislodge the resulting overlying denture. This article aims to presents a case report for the
prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient with a flabby tissue with a modified window impression technique.
