The article discusses the problem of maxillary complete dentures opposed by retained mandibular canine and incisor teeth, and its treatment methods, with and without surgical intervention. It is reported that, most of the stated problems of denture intolerance arise from mylohyoid ridges. It is stated that, where the mean level of the mandibular ridge is below that of the mylohyoid ridge, prior surgical preparation may be necessary and should always be considered. The treatment of the flabby anterior maxillary ridge, as reported, can be done with sulcoplasty, which includes three methods including, advancement of mucosa, which is adjacent to the sulcus, to line both sides of an extended sulcus, and transplantation of epithelium to line one or both sides of the extended sulcus.
