Routine custom trays are difficult to use to make impressions for patients with microstomia. Several types of split custom trays have been introduced to accommodate these situations. A method of fabricating mandibular and maxillary sectional special trays and impression technique for a patient with small oral opening is described. Sectional maxillary and mandibular custom trays can enhance its stabilization during border molding and final impression making. Thus it helps in fabricating a better fitting complete denture for such patients and also makes the impression procedure easy for patient with limited opening as the tray can easily be inserted in two pieces.

Keywords: Impression, Microstomia, Sectional custom tray.
