Rights and Permissions

When the mouth opening is restricted, it can hinder the successful dental treatment. This limited mouth opening may be due to some surgical treatment, oral submucous fibrosis, temporomandibular joint disorder, burns, space infections, trauma, neoplasm, radiotherapy, and scleroderma. This case report describes the simplified prosthodontic management of a completely edentulous patient with limited mouth opening by providing sectional maxillary and mandibular dentures joined by hinges.
