Abstract

A removable veneer-type palatal augmentation prosthesis (PAP) was attached to a complete denture to reduce weight and maintain good hygiene. As a result, the weight of the PAP was reduced from 27.1 g at the time of palatal augmentation, by using the tissue conditioner, to 16.6 g, with the definitive removable veneer-type prosthesis. This method can also be applied to removable partial dentures when the impression of the palatal augmentation is properly positioned on the definitive cast after the removal of the tissue conditioner.
