AbstractAgeing is related to loss of teeth, resorption of the alveolar ridge, and reduced tonicity of the facial muscles, resulting in sunken cheeks and an unesthetic appearance. Sunken cheeks are one among the main consequences of flaccid facial musculature. A cheek plumper could be a commonly used prosthesis to reinforce the support of sunken cheeks, providing better esthetics.This clinical report describes a technique for fabricating detachable maxillary cheek plumpers by placing grooves and ridges using inlay wax and putty.
