28 Appointment 6 Denture fit Stage Upper denture adjusted at labial extensions No adjustment required to lower denture No adjustment needed to bite

29 Appointment 7 Review Stage 2 weeks post insertion review Patient feels upper retention greatly improved and new soft lining making dentures more comfortable to eat with. Adjusted the naso-labial extension once again as causing slight friction sore. Patient happy with feel and function of dentures

30 Pre and post treatment photographs


32 Maintenance/Recall Patient given instruction on cleaning the denture and maintaining the soft lining without damaging the soft material Patient to continue annual check up at practice Told TCA if any problems occur Treatment complete

33 Reflection Following mentors advice on extending the current denture first to ensure patient could tolerate before we proceeded further with the treatment worked well As visually impaired, aesthetics were not a priority to the patient yet using good materials allowed us to get good result Denture cleaning advice should ensure new dentures stay in good condition for longer
