Initial treatment

Improved denture hygiene , as patient has parkinson's , advised better handle grips to help with denture cleaning brush which helped a lot . Antifungal 2% Micanazole oralmucosal gel twice a day for 10 days on the angles of the mouth and on the fit surface of the denture and the result was much improved.

On the lower dentures the anterior buccal flange was cutback and relined with ‘tissue conditioner’(Coe Comfort) and changed every week for up to 4 times.Then it was relined with soft reline(Coe-soft) until the fabrication of new dentures.

Stage 1 - Implant Placement
