Although various methods have been applied for getting a Complete Denture with perfect retention, but it is difficult to attain. Residual ridge resorption creates an ill-fitting denture, hence causing difficulty while eating and even dislodging during talking, even adding to the patient's embarrassment. Suction cup has been widely used for the retention & stability of dentures, but is known to carry few complications like palatal perforations and oro-antral communications. Here we present a case report of palatal hyperplasia due to the suction cup.
