Abstract

The prosthetic rehabilitation of an atrophic mandible is usually unsatisfactory due to the lack of support tissues, mainly bone and keratinized mucosa for treatment with conventional prosthesis. The prosthetic instability leads to social and functional limitations and chronic physical trauma decreasing the patient’s quality of life. Severe resorption contributes to the instability and discomfort with the conventional acrylic resin denture. The objective is to develop aim pression technique that provide maximum support of hard tissues and soft tissues. The article in the form of clinical case report describes the process of fabrication of complete denture by using McCord and Tyson and neutral zone to overcome the problem associated with asymmetric atrophic ridge.

Keywords:
Atrophic ridge, McCord’s Tyson technique, Neutral zone
