Objective: To report a clinical case of tissue readjustment by provisional relining in an upper complete denture.

Presentation of Case: A 63-year-old male patient, melanoderma, asthmatic and type II diabetic, attended the dental clinic of a Higher Education Institution, complaining of pain when fitting the prosthesis. He reported that he had had a complete upper denture approximately 5 months ago. On clinical examination, hyperplastic lesions were noted in the anterior and middle portions at the bottom of the vestibule of the upper arch. The prosthesis, on the other hand, highlighted peripheral irregularities with a pointed aspect in the areas corresponding to the lesions. Given the conditions presented, it was urgently decided to remove the irregularities of the upper complete denture followed by provisional relining. After performing the technique, the patient was clinically followed up, after 30 days there was a decrease in the lesion.

Conclusion: The use of this technique in complete dentures as a provisional action aimed at conditioning the injured tissue and retaining the piece in the alveolar ridge was, therefore, satisfactory, meeting the main requirements for resolution of the case and suitability for subsequent continuity of definitive rehabilitation.
