Residual ridge resorption is an inevitable and natural physiologic process which creates a challenging clinical scenario for the prosthodontist in fabrication of complete denture. It significantly affects the retention and stability of the complete denture. Numerous efforts were made over the years in the effective management of resorbed ridges by modification of the impression technique, occlusal scheme and arrangement of teeth in the neutral zone. This case report describes the management of a patient with severely resorbed mandibular ridge using neutrocentric occlusion to obtain adequate stability.
