Hypermobile ridges or flabby edentulous ridges are a common occurrence in edentulous patients. The literature reveals that the mucostatic impression technique is one of the treatment options in this scenario. Conventional mucostatic methods like employing a window tray technique, multiple relief holes, or double spacers can be employed when the flabby tissue is localized. But in cases of generalized flabbiness of the residual ridge, even the manual placement and manipulation of a custom tray may distort the tissues, violating the principle of mucostatics. This presentation is a clinical report of a patient with a generalized flabby maxillary edentulous ridge opposing a partially edentulous mandibular arch. A split two-part special tray using the principle of magnetic attraction for self retention was fabricated. This self retention ruled out finger pressure during impression making, helping to achieve mucostatics.
