Abstract
Background:
A common and sometimes irritating consequence of ill-fitting denture is denture fissuratum. Different methods are used to diagnose, treat, and prevent this health condition, but there are a variety of challenges and issues with surgical management.
Case Presentation:
Two cases were discussed involving combined surgical excision and vestibuloplasty which, when done carefully, produced satisfactory outcomes and considerably improved the patient's health. Combining prosthetic vestibuloplasty with patient’s denture support simultaneously with fissuratum excision improves vestibule depth and ridge height, potentially reducing recurrence of this irritative hyperplasia.
Conclusion:
Avoiding uncomfortable denture sequelae like denture fissuratum requires thorough monitoring of edentulous patients and avoiding poorly fitted dentures. Working together as a team and using multiple dental techniques greatly improves the procedure's outcome.

Key words: Denture, fissuratum, epulis, vestibuloplasty, case report
