A restricted mouth opening which seems smaller than the size of a complete denture can make prosthetic treatment challenging. Several techniques have been described for use when either standard impression trays or the denture itself becomes too difficult to insert and remove from the mouth. This case report describes innovative techniques of primary impression, sectional custom tray, sectional denture base, and fabrication of 'customized hinge' for hinged mandibular denture.
