Abstract

Overdenture is a favoured treatment modality for elderly patients with few remaining teeth which preclude the inevitability of “floating plastic” in edentulous mouths. Roots maintained under the denture base preserve the alveolar ridge, provide sensory feedback, retention and improve the stability of the dentures. The preservation of teeth to support an attachment-retained overdenture is an appropriate and stable alternative to extractions and complete dentures. Furthermore, the use of copings and precision attachments on the remaining teeth enhances the retention of the denture. This case report discusses a simple and cost effective alternative treatment for enhancing retention and esthetics by fabricating a flangeless tooth supported overdenture retained with different abutments such as non coping abutments and coping abutments with attachments.

Keywords: Over denture, Abutments, Partial flange, Esthetics.
