This technique allows construction of a detachable custom tray by the dental laboratory before the distal extension RPD framework is returned to the dentist. This permits a framework try-in with unencumbered physiologic relief, rapid attachment of the custom tray, subsequent impression making, and possibly jaw relation records all in one patient visit.
