Mobile fibrous tissue in the anterior region of the maxillae may offer inadequate support for a complete denture and result in reduced stability and retention. This condition is normally caused by localized loading when the complete maxillary denture is opposed by natural anterior teeth and an absence of posterior natural or artificial teeth. The presence of displaceable denture-bearing tissues often presents a difficulty when making complete dentures. Unless managed appropriately, such 'flabby ridges' adversely affect the support, retention and stability of complete dentures. Many impression techniques have been proposed to help overcome this difficulty. The technique described a two stage impression procedure in a conventional base modified over the area of the fibrous tissue.
