The edentulous state represents a compromise in the integrity of the masticatory system . The common treatment option for rehabilitation of edentulous state is the conventional complete denture. Occlusal paths and Cuspal paths generated on the mechanical articulator often differ from those that are actually generated in the mouth . Functionally generated path technique is one such approach which aids in the automatic determination of the geometric harmonious relation between the functional occlusal path and condylar paths at chosen vertical dimension . This technique permits the registration of the cusp movements as determined by the functional mandibular movements and thus helps in development of harmonious occlusion. This article describes a case report in which a step by step approach was used to develop functionally generated occlusal path in fabricating a complete denture.
