Later a small hole was made and the table salt was washed off in water and the hole was also filled with self cure resin, The obturator was well retained in the patient\'s mouth and markedly improved his ability to speak and swallow-This technique proved to be a simple, quick, and cost-effective method for construction ofhollcw bulb Obturators for acquired maxillary defects.
