Abstract

To provide a mandibular complete denture for a patient with a partial glossectomy and partial mandibulectomy, the denture space was captured using a piezography technique involving silicone impression materials with two different viscosities. Artificial teeth were arranged within the obtained piezographic index, and the denture was processed in the conventional manner. Using the piezography technique described enables physiologically appropriate complete dentures to be fabricated based on the neutral zone concept. (Int J Maxillofac Prosthetics 2021;4:37-42)
