Prosthetic rehabilitation of patient with severely resorbed mandibular ridge by using neutral zone and monoplane occlusion
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Pardeep Bansal, Dr. Alamjit Kaur and Dr. Preetika Bansal
Achieving stability in severely resorbed ridges is one of the most challenging task. However, neutral zone technique can be employed in such case to achieve stability by placing teeth in harmony with the neuromusculature, since complete denture is more likely to be stable if located within this “denture space” or “neutral zone”. The stability of mandibular complete denture base can be enhanced through monoplane occlusion, as it reduces horizontal vectors of force at occlusal contact.
This article describes the combination of both i. e. neutral zone technique and monoplane plane occlusion to achieve optimum stability in mandibular teeth.
