Thank you for the question Dr Butt.  Dentinaltubules has some really good videos about this. Dr Andrew Shelley is doing an excellent series on complete dentures and providing practical tips on how to go about this step by step. In one of his videos, he talks about some really good tips for lower denture impressions. Check the full video out by clicking here.

He also did an upper impressions video, which received amazing positive reviews. This can be seen by clicking here
