Tissue Conditioning Treatment Protocols

All patients requiring tissue conditioning:
1. Clean denture for patient (ultrasonic and cleanser)
2. Educate the patient concerning the condition and home care
– brushing denture
– oral hygiene – brush, massage tissues
– tissue rest – 8 hrs./day
– tissue rest – 24 hours prior to final impressions

Patients should understand that inconvenience (1-3 days) now will affect their new denture over the years of use*

Patients with moderate to severe inflammation:
1. Check extensions of the denture
– if over extended – trim as required
– if under extended – limited increase in base with soft liner
2. Correct occlusal disharmonies, if present:
– clinical remount
– soft acrylic mouthguard
– addition of acrylic to teeth
3. Soft denture liner to:
– provide resilience, and comfort
– provide minor alterations of the occlusal vertical dimension
– improve the fit and stability of the denture
– make minor extensions to the denture base

When treatment is not successful:
1. Refer for diagnosis/treatment of systemic disorder
2. Surgical treatment/ biopsy may be necessary
