Abstract

Preprosthetic surgery is often indicated of obtain a firm, resilient covering that is uninterrupted by frena, scars, or redundant tissue. However, surgical intervention is contraindicated for some patients, especially the medically compromised. This paper presents a viable alternative to surgical intervention of atypical tissue attachments - the use of beading on the master cast. This procedure requires minimal time and is easily accomplished.
