Gingival Description: Papillary gingiva: generalized pale pink, pointed and fills interdental space
(Figure 2); localized flattened and blunted interdental papillae on facials and linguals of #3, 4, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 28, 29, 30, 31 (Figures 3 and 4).
1) The relation of MF with the lower teeth (the position of the MF was recorded as lying in line with the long axis of a tooth or interdental space
in one of the six relations  (Figure 1): Anterior to the first premolar--Type 1; below the first premolar--Type 2; between the premolars--Type 3; below the second premolar--Type 4; posterior to the second premolar--Type 5; and below the first molar Type 6
The osteoclastic resorption of alveolar bone may result in deep, narrow lesions extending vertically around a single root leaving the interdental space
Widening of the interdental spaces
, and an expanded, heterogeneous appearing diploic space was also identified (Figure 1).
Open interdental spaces
and elongated clinical crowns due to increased bone loss in alveolar crest may result from periodontal diseases, ridge resorption, surgeries, trauma, and traumatic tooth extraction.

and provide favourable force distribution.
That will serve two purposes; to prevent locking of the acrylic material in the interdental spaces
and to allow the gingival margins of teeth to act as reference point on which we need to stop at when placing the acrylic-loaded splint.
