  • Abstract

    An ideal complete denture should be flexible and adapts well to the tissue surface and should provide proper retention. Conventional complete dentures lack flexibility and softness on the tissue surface and are more rigid. Due to the rigidity of the conventional dentures, the distribution of load is not even, especially in case of flabby, atrophic ridges with increased bone resorption. To overcome this disadvantage, the liquid dentures are fabricated in such a way that denture base is covered with a pre-fabricated flexible, foil which helps in proper adaptation to the mucosa in functional and non-functional states. Liquid-supported dentures provide good retention, stability, and support. The liquid supported denture allows continued adaptation and eliminates the disadvantages of denture designs based on the application of temporary tissue conditioners or soft liners. This article describes the uses of liquid supported dentures and its advantages.
