Abstract

For evaluation of the comfortable zone (CZ) and the most comfortable position (MCP) of the occlusal vertical relation of the mandible, the constant stimuli method with three subjective categories of judgements was applied in 10 edentulous subjects. The evaluated CZ was stable and about 3 mm in width. The occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) of the existing dentures was found to be located within the CZ in nine of the 10 subjects.
