Abstract

To provide maxillary and mandibular complete dentures for a patient with severe ridge resorption, the denture space was recorded using the piezography technique. After the piezographic space was scanned, a virtual tooth arrangement and festooning were performed within the space using computer-aided design software. The denture bases were milled from a polymethylmethacrylate resin block using computer-aided manufacturing, and commercially available denture teeth were bonded with resin adhesive. Using the piezography technique described, physiologically appropriate complete dentures were fabricated based on the neutral zone concept.
