Residual ridge resorption is the reduction in size of the bony ridge under the mucoperiosteum. The resorption occurs faster in the mandibular arch as compared to the maxillary arch. Fabrication of any dental prosthesis over a compromised residual alveolar ridge is really a challenge for prosthodontists. The pattern of bone resorption observed in Atwood's Orders V and VI causes difficulty in providing successful dentures, especially lower denture where stability of denture may get compromised. This clinical case report elicits a combination of different impression techniques to improve mandibular denture stability in severely resorbed ridges preventing their further resorption.
