Complete denture rehabilitation in the edentulous patient with severe mandibular bone resorption and vascular malformation using closed mouth impression and monoplane occlusion: A case report

  • 1Department of Prosthodontics, School of Dentistry, Wonkwang University, Iksan, Republic of Korea


A patient failed to use conventional complete dentures due to severe mandibular bone resorption and soft tissue hyperplasia on lips, tongue and oral vestibule from vascular malformation. The treatment of choice would be an implant-retained overdenture, however, he refused owing to high cost. The closed mouth impression technique using BPS principle, CR record registration with gothic arch tracing and monoplane occlusion using non-anatomic teeth were used to fabricate complete dentures for this patient. Patient satisfaction, the retention and the stability of complete dentures were highly improved as a result.
