The buccal undercut of the maxillary tuberosity, together with the reduced width of the buccal vestibule can complicate denture fabrication. This clinical report describes the treatment options which are available for this situation, the rationale for the design, the use of soft resilient denture flanges in the maxillary posterior buccal vestibule, and the chair-side permanent reline procedure for the incorporation of resilient denture flanges in the undercut area.
