Technique Tips:  Neutral Zone Concept for Implant Placement in Mandibular Overdentures: A Case Report

Feedback:  1 comment, 1 rating    

      

Abstract: The objectives for complete denture fabrication are to provide comfort, function and aesthetics. The availability of implant-assisted overdentures has benefited complete denture wearers; however, the success of the prostheses can be further enhanced when the neutral zone concept is incorporated as a mean to locate the correct position of the implants, as well as the tooth arrangement for optimal outcome of the prescribed prostheses.

Clinical relevance: Use of the neutral zone concept to assist implant placement and teeth setting in a severely resorbed edentulous mandible is beneficial.
