Context: Alveolar mucosa over the jaw bones in edentulous patients has varying thickness and mobility at different areas and is often imprecise at the time of impression making. Such impressions in the finished dentures cause inflammation and instability of the complete dentures. Aim: To present three methods for selective pressure impressions for complete denture treatment in patients who had different kinds of localization and abnormalities of the thickness of alveolar ridges mucosa. Materials and Methods: Three different impression techniques were used for selective pressure impressions in 15 completely edentulous patients based on the location of flabby tissue and special tray modifications. The patients expressed comfort and satisfaction during the usage of the new dentures, compared with the previous one fabricated with the new impression technique. Conclusion: The suggested methods eliminate the excessive displacement of the soft tissues at the secondary impression; thus, a physiologic and anatomic registration of the attached and the unattached tissue of the denture-bearing areas is attained.
