Stable record bases are critical for recording accurate maxillomandibular relations and in the evaluation of the esthetics and phonetics of wax trial prostheses. However, the record base for a maxillary obturator is often compromised because of a surgical defect and/or because the weight of the record base creates instability. This article describes a simple procedure for retaining and stabilizing a record base for an edentulous obturator prosthesis using silicone resilient relining materials.
