The purpose of this study was to determine the differences in the recovery responses of irritated tissues beneath ill-fitting dentures in the maxillary arch, using two different procedures. These procedures are 1 the use of tissue conditioning materials to aid the tissues in their recover, and 2 the complete removal of the illfitting dentures for 72-hour periods before new impressions are made. Clinical evaluations, diagnostic casts, and cephalometric tracings were used to make the comparisons of the two procedures.
