Xerostomia is a subjective feeling of dry mouth. Patients suffer a lot due to xerostomia i.e. from high risk of caries to discomfort in wearing the intra oral prosthesis. It affects the quality of life of the patients. Many prosthodontic management options emerged and still researches are on progress to find best option for xerostomia management. Dentures with salivary reservoirs are one of the novel approaches in the management of xerostomia. But the procedure involved in the fabrication is cumbersome. We report a case with xerostomia and a modified approach to manage with salivary reservoir complete denture. We used split mandibular salivary reservoir complete denture using die pins and sialogogue (1% malic acid) to improve the comfort in wearing the complete dentures.
