Implant assisted RCD (IRCD) has been a standard of care in dentistry, however, there is a portion of the population that cannot go through IRCD treatment and needs to seek conventional RCD treatment. One of the challenges the dentist and the prosthodontist encounter during RCD treatment is the patient’s satisfaction with their mandibular RCD retention. A common misunderstanding is the depth of the floor of the mouth, which is the most mishandled area when it comes to making impressions.
