The aim of this study is to systematically review the available literature and determine the potential benefits of altered cast impression technique, revealing a significant contribution in stabilization of skeletal and hybrid prosthesis and providing an overview of the materials and methods employed, presenting the results and discussions from existing research, and drawing conclusive insights. Results Cast partial denture made using the altered cast impression technique helps create an environment in which the teeth and the edentulous tissues support the base as compatibly as possible. The result is a potentially more stable RPD that improves the support for the occlusal relationship of the opposing dentition and the RPD restoration. Conclusions Recording mucosa in its functional form as described in the altered cast technique may improve denture biomechanical behavior in terms of stability and support . In conclusion, this technique has the potential benefits of reducing the number of postoperative visits, preserving the residual ridges, improving stress distribution, decreasing food impaction and decreasing the torquing of abutment teeth.
