Patients with microstomia who have to wear removable dental prostheses often face the difficulty of being unable to insert or remove the prosthesis because of the constricted opening of the oral cavity. This clinical report describes in detail the prosthodontic management of an edentulous patient with microstomia induced by scleroderma. Sectional-collapsible maxillary and sectional mandibular complete dentures were fabricated by means of sectional trays. With the use of palatal midline hinge and stud attachments, the sectional dentures were successfully and easily inserted and removed. (Quintessence Int 2007;38:1522)

Key words: microstomia, scleroderma, sectional-collapsible complete denture, sectioned trays
