Restoration of comfort, esthetics and masticatory function in severely resorbed atrophic ridges is challenging to the clinician. Extreme resorption of the maxillary and mandibular denture bearing areas results in unstable and nonretentive dentures with associated pain and discomfort. These problems are more pronounced in mandible due to lesser denture bearing area and other anatomical limitations. This article attempts to present a modified physiologic impression technique using contemporary materials and suitable spacer design for atrophic mandible.
