Abstract

The advantage of immediate dentures is that the patient need not experience edentulism and there is no interruption to normal lifestyle smiling, talking, eating, and socializing. However, immediate denture fabrication is more challenging because of the limited predictability of the related factors like the fit, appearance and comfort. Impression making in immediate dentures becomes difficult if the remaining teeth are mobile. This clinical report describes a technique of impression making for such a situation.
