Management of a severely resorbed mandibular ridge with the neutral zone technique

By Shekar S. Chandra

Abstract

The loose and unstable lower complete denture is one of the most common problems faced by denture patients. One of the methods used to solve this problem is the neutral zone technique. The neutral zone is the area where the displacing forces of the lips, cheeks, and tongue are in balance. It is in this zone that the natural dentitions lie and this is where the artificial teeth should be positioned. This area of minimal conflict may be located by using the neutral zone technique. The artificial teeth can then be set up in the correct positions
