Prosthetic rehabilitation using complete dentures is quite a challenging task when accompanied by severely atrophic ridges. Various modifications are required in the treatment strategy to optimize the prognosis of the finished prosthesis. Moreover, the increased inter-arch space demands the hollowing of the maxillary denture to mitigate the issues in retention due to increased weight. This case report aims to demonstrate a technique used to fabricate a hollow maxillary denture and a mandibular denture using the neutral zone approach in the case of a severely atrophied ridge.
