Preventive prosthodontics emphasizes the importance of those procedures that can delay or eliminate future prosthodontic problems. Resorption of the residual alveolar ridge is an unavoidable consequence of tooth loss seen in patients wearing conventional complete dentures after complete loss of teeth. In modern dental practice, multiple treatment modalities are available for the preservation of teeth and prevention of bone loss since both are said to be interrelated. Dentures fabricated over these retained tooth/teeth or roots of teeth are called overdentures, which is a part of “preventive prosthodontic therapy”. The article describes two cases treated by providing tooth supported overdentures.
