Completely edentulous patients wearing dentures since long time have a problem with decreased stability of their mandibular complete dentures because of severe resorption of lower edentulous ridge and altered neuromuscular control. This problem can be overcomed by incorporating neutral zone technique in complete denture fabrication. In this case report, the steps of recording the influence of neutral zone in both maxillary & mandibular complete dentures are described using condensation silicone material.
Key words: Condensation Silicone, Neutral Zone, Denture stability.
