Proper seating of the temporary denture bases on the cast and in the mouth of the patient is a prime requisite for accurate recording of maxilla-mandibular jaw relations. The block-out procedures carried out during the fabrication of temporary record bases tend to make the record bases unstable and unretentive in the mouth if there are severe undercuts present. This might lead to inaccurate seating, inaccurate jaw relation recording, and compromise in the aesthetics and phonetics. To overcome this, some techniques of stabilizing the record bases are essential. The purpose of this article is to put together the methods used to stabilize the temporary record bases and review their effectiveness.
