A fibrous or flabby ridge is a superficial area of mobile soft tissue affecting the maxillary or mandibular alveolar ridges. It can develop when hyperplastic soft tissue replaces the alveolar bone and is a common finding particularly in the upper anterior region of long-term denture wearers. Masticatory forces can displace this mobile denture-bearing tissue, leading to altered denture positioning and loss of peripheral seal. 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. This paper presents case report for prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient with flabby ridge with McCord and Ahmad impression technique.
