In many cases, wearing old dentures may cause abnormalities and soft tissue lesions, the success of a new prosthetic therapy is conditioned by the elimination of all the lesions and anatomical defects of these tissues. This can be accomplished by performing pre-treatment for tissue conditioning by the use of conditioning materials that allow osteo-mucosal infrastructures to return to their healthy state by reducing and evenly distributing the stresses to which they are subjected.

This approach allows a good adaptation of the new denture by improving intrinsic and extrinsic qualities of the supporting surface and thus will provide a better quality of life to patients‎.
