Abstract: Residual ridge resorption is chronic, progressive, irreversible and cumulative condition associated with teeth loss. Management of a residual ridge with severe resorption to fulfill the patients esthetic and functional requirements is quite difficult for the practitioner and also in the construction of an acceptable appliance. As the height of the edentulous ridge reduces the mandibular denture will be improperly function. Severe resorption of the mandibular alveolar ridge may cause instability and discomfort of the convention acrylic resin denture. Dealing with this condition requires clinical skills and knowledge. Treating the severely resorbed mandibular ridge is a challenging effort for prosthodontics. This research presents a case report on neutral zone impression technique used for treating a completely edentulous patient with resorbed ridges, in addition to using four dental implants in order to get the benefits of both occlusal harmony from the neutral zone which located the teeth in it and the support, retention from implants in bone. The use of combination of a neutral zone impression technique and the implant supported over denture for the treatment of severely resorbed mandibular ridge result in patient satisfied with the enhancement in denture retention, stability, and support.
