The coordination of complete dentures with neuromuscular function is the foundation of successful stable dentures. The lower denture commonly presents the most difficulties because the mandible atrophies at a greater rate than the maxilla and has less residual ridge for retention and support. Regardless of implant availability, physiologically optimal denture contours and physiologically appropriate denture teeth arrangement should be achieved to maximize prosthesis stability, comfort, and function for patients. The neutral zone technique is most effective for patients who have had numerous unstable, unretentive lower complete dentures owing to atrophied ridge, altered or diminished neuromuscular control or more powerful oral musculature.This article illustrates the concepts and canons behind the neutral zone and the techniques for recording it.
