Abused, inflamed, atrophic, and flabby ridges always pose a great challenge to a prosthodontist in the fabrication of complete dentures. Healthy underlying tissue is a prerequisite for a successful denture. In flabby ridges, due to the compressible nature of the tissues, the denture might lose stability very soon. Liquid-supported dentures may act as a viable option which provides a soft, resilient, and adaptable intaglio surface of the denture. It helps in the preservation of the residual ridge resorption by optimal distribution of the masticatory forces and gives adequate retention, stability, and support. This article describes a case report of prosthodontic management of a flabby ridge nonsurgically, with a modified window impression technique and a liquid supported maxillary denture for better patient acceptance and comfort.
