Resorption of alveolar ridges is a dynamic process. It is a continuous process, with varying rates in individual at different times. Due to residual ridge resorption, complete denture prosthesis seldom remains in close adaptation to underlying soft tissues, causing tissue irritation and alteration in underlying mucosa. Denture base have to be flexible to adapt underlying mucosa, and rigid to withstand masticatory forces. Also the incorrect tooth placement and arbitrary shaping of the polished surfaces also questions the success of prosthesis, which can be managed by using neutral zone concept. This case report presents the use neutral zone for atrophic mandibular ridge and fluid retained denture for flabby tissue in anterior maxillary arch.
