Abstract

Overdenture has been a proven mainstay of conservative prosthodontic treatment when proper diagnosis, treatment planning, and most importantly, patient compliance are achieved. Despite recent developments in dental implantology, the conservative approach to root preservation followed by an overdenture is still valid. The many advantages of root retention include- alveolar bone maintenance, better prosthesis support, proprioceptive feedback, aesthetics and psychological benefits. This paper presents a case report of rehabilitation of an edentulous patient with a tooth supported overdenture.

Keywords: Short copings, Tooth supported, Overdenture.
