ABSTRACT
A series of destructive changes occurring in the jaws of patients wearing a complete maxillary denture opposed by a mandibular distal extension removable partial denture have been described as the combination syndrome. However, the syndrome does not occur in all patients. Although many advances have been made in denture prosthetics, the great problem is still with us: coping with the resorption of theresidual alveolar ridge and managing or preventing the secondary soft tissue changes brought on by bone loss. A properly designed removable partial denture that distributes occlusal stresses over hard and soft tissues minimizes the risk of developing the combination syndrome. The purpose of this clinical report is to present an alternative approach to treating a patient who requires a new prosthesis and who exhibits conditions consistent with combination syndrome.
