Construction of complete dentures with adequate retention is a complex procedure. Various techniques have been tried to improve the retention of dentures. Use of suction cup in maxillary denture is one of the techniques to improve retention. Suction cup provides retention and stability by inducing negative pressure on the mucosal surface. Palatal Suction cups which provide high retention are not being recommended because of their pathological effects on the palatal tissues. Here a case report of complete denture with suction cup induced palatal perforation which was surgically treated is presented.
