Even though implant overdentures are preferentially recommended to mandibular edentulous patients, many patients may select conventional complete dentures due to cost and general condition. Proper retention and stability of conventional complete dentures in patients with severe alveolar bone resorption is difficult to achieve. To overcome the limitations, mandibular suction dentures with the closed mouth impression technique have been used. However, the previous technique requires the Frame cut back tray, the Centric tray, and the Gnathometer M. This article introduces a technique for fabricating a mandibular suction denture with common dental materials.
