A basic concern of edentulous patients is retention of their dentures. This has led to considerable experimentation and research in efforts to perfect dentures that compensate for the loss of natural teeth. The use of multiple miniature suction cups made from a soft material lining the denture satisfies the requirements of retention and stability. A technique describing the fabrication of a maxillary and mandibular multicup dentures which are more beneficial than conventional complete dentures is discussed below with case report.
