Abstract

The immediate denture is a dental prosthesis constructed to replace the lost dentition, associated structures of the maxillae and mandible and inserted immediately following removal of the remaining teeth. The purpose of the present clinical report is to describe the use of a sectional impression tray technique that can prevent extraction of supporting teeth of patient’s extensive fixed prosthesis, where the teeth were hopeless and fabricating an interim immediate complete denture was a treatment option to prevent patient’s distress, anxiety and embarrassment. The present procedure was used to replicate the vertical dimension, phonetic and aesthetic of the existing fixed prostheses as part of an immediate denture and a final complete denture.
