Abstract

Bimaxillary protrusion and severe labioversion of anterior teeth complicate impression procedures and increase the difficulty in making esthetic predictions for the immediate complete denture patient. The presented technique, performed in reverse order of traditional methods, is accomplished in stages in which the anterior and nonessential posterior teeth are extracted and interim removable partial dentures placed. An opportunity is thus created to evaluate esthetics, phonetics, and anterior tooth function before extraction of the remaining dentition and delivery of immediate complete dentures. This technique facilitated the determination of the need for alveoplasty of the anterior maxilla.
