The severely resorbed maxillary and mandibular edentulous arches that are narrow and constricted with increased inter-arch space provide decreased support, retention, and stability and pose a clinical challenge to the success of complete denture prostheses. The consequent weight of the processed complete denture only compromises them further. This article highlights a technique for the fabrication of a hollow maxillary complete denture in situation where there is excessive resorption of the maxillary residual alveolar ridge and thereby greatly reducing the weight of an exceptionally heavy maxillary denture. Weight of a denture may be a contributing factor to the successful resolution of a patient's problem; the hollow denture can be considered as one of the treatment modalities.
