Prosthetic rehabilitation of microstomia patients presents difficulties at all stages as the maximal oral opening is smaller than the size of a complete denture. Such a condition may often result from the surgical treatment of orofacial cancer, cleft lip, trauma, burns, Plummer-Vinson syndrome or scleroderma. Microstomia frequently leads to several incapacitating sequelae such as the inability to masticate, speech problems, impaired delivery of oral hygiene or dental care, and psychological problems secondary to facial disfigurement. Several techniques have been described to use when either standard impression trays or the denture itself becomes too difficult to place and remove from the mouth. This article focuses on a novel fabrication of maxillary sectional trays that could enable easier and competent impression making in a patient with limited oral opening.
