Extreme resorption of edentulous maxilla and mandible often poses a challenge to a prosthodontist while fabrication of successful complete dentures in such clinical cases. Optimum denture stability is difficult to achieve in conventional dentures and the problem is more magnified in severely resorbed ridges. The design of prosthesis to restore the lost structures is largely determined by the position and amount of morphological change in the denture bearing area of the jaws. Liquid supported denture allows better stress distribution due to its flexible nature and provides an alternative treatment approach in flabby ridges. This article presents a case report which describes the fabrication of liquid supported complete denture to aid in the management of these compromised conditions.
