Hypermobile ridges or flabby edentulous ridges are a common occurrence. The mucostatic or minimally displacive impression technique is one of the treatment options in this scenario. Conventional mucostatic methods like employing a window tray technique, double spacers, multiple relief holes, can be utilized. Even the manual placement and manipulation of a custom tray may distort the tissues. This may violate the principles of mucostatic impression technique. Flabby ridges can be managed surgically by excision, ridge augmentation, injection of sclerosing solutions and also by implant retained prosthesis. Proper recording of these hypermobile tissues and stable occlusal contacts can help to manage flabby tissues to certain extent. This case report is about surgical and prosthodontic approach for management of a maxillary flabby edentulous ridge with the aid of a minimally displacive impression technique.
