Rights and Permissions

The success of complete denture relies on the principles of retention, stability, and support. Increased interridge space, long lip length, and resorbed ridges lead to a heavy-weighted prosthesis which transmits the leverage forces, hence affecting the retention, stability, and support. This article describes the case of a completely edentulous patient with increased interridge space, which was successfully rehabilitated with a hollow denture by simplified technique.
