Residual ridge resorption is a very common phenomenon observed in edentulous patients over a certain span of edentulism. Though it occurs more rapidly in mandibular arch than in maxillary arch, severely resorbed maxillary ridges with increased inter-ridge distance often lead to difficulty in prosthetic rehabilitation. This case report describes an easy yet accurate method for fabrication of a hollow maxillary complete denture using super-absorbent polymer as a spacer for the hollow cavity using a single flask technique.
