Abstract: The presence of displaceable denture bearing tissue often gives rise to a difficulty during the fabrication of complete denture. Presence of flabby tissue generally affects the stability, retention and support of complete denture. Various impression techniques and materials have been proposed for management of flabby tissues. But most of the impression techniques are complex to, quite time consuming to perform, and rely on the materials that are not commonly used in day to day general dental practice. This case report describes about the management of flabby ridge with using an impression technique that makes use of the material that is readily available in routine dental practice, is less time consuming and extra appointment are not required.
