Abstract

The overdenture is a removable prosthesis that is supported by both selectively retained teeth and the residual ridge or mucosa. It is a versatile and successful means of achieving long-term restoration of a partially edentulous jaw. Insertion and removal of the denture and routine oral hygiene are easy to perform. The many advantages of root retention include alveolar bone maintenance, better prosthesis support, proprioceptive feedback, aesthetics and psychological benefits. As for the treatment plan a conventional complete denture opposing a tooth supported overdenture results in midline fracture of the prosthesis due to increased forces. Therefore it is suggested to fabricate a metal reinforced denture opposing tooth supported overdenture. This paper presents a case report of rehabilitation of a partially edentulous patient with a tooth supported overdenture in mandibular arch with metal reinforced maxillary complete denture.
