In developing countries, cost is being a major determinant of patient’s choice specially with unemployed residual ridge. In this case report a clinical technique has been explained for physiologic registration of denture tooth position, denture base contours and body forms for resorbed mandibular ridges.

Keywords: Resorbed ridge, Neutral zone, Teeth arrangement, Complete denture.
