We discussed design and fabrication steps on the working cast with the operating technician beforehand, also all under cuts including cleft spaces were blocked with baseplate wax, then using autoploymerizing acrylic resin a 2-3mm thickness molding prosthesis was fabricated along with stainless stents extensions as described by9,10 see Fig 2.
Finger-like extensions were made all around the periphery of cast metal insert and this was then adapted over the first single thickness of baseplate wax (adapted on the master cast).
At the laboratory, master models of both arches were prepared and occlusal wax rims were prepared using extra hard modeling wax (TruwaxA Baseplate Wax, Dentsply Caulk, Milford, DE).
