Flexible denture flanges for patients exhibiting undercut tuberosities and reduced width of the buccal vestibule: a clinical report.

Abstract

Buccal undercut of the maxillary tuberosity together with reduced width of the buccal vestibule can complicate denture fabrication. This clinical report describes the treatment options for this situation, the rationale for the design and use of flexible denture flanges in the maxillary posterior buccal vestibule, and the laboratory procedure for incorporation of flexible denture flanges in the undercut area.
