Abstract

For edentulous patients with unstable mandibular movements and abnormal facial features due to condylar fractures and morphological abnormalities, it is important to find a stable mandibular position. In this case, the patient’s facial improvement, mandibular movement stability, and denture stability were improved by using flat table treatment dentures. In addition, computer-aided design/manufacturing (CAD-CAM) technology was used in denture fabrication to maintain the vertical dimension and lip support of flat table treatment dentures, we report good results in improving the patient’s discomfort.
