M.M. Devan stated, “It is more important to preserve what already exists than to replace what is missing" has always set a gold standard and has never been disapproved. In clinical situations with remaining partial dentition, various treatment options are available to the prosthodontists out of which overdentures have always been considered as a superior treatment modality. Preventive prosthodontics has always been advantageous in maintaining the propioreception and preventing residual ridge resorption, which forms the basis of preventive prosthodontics. This clinical report describes the prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient with a mandibular telescopic overdenture for added advantages like better retention, stability, support and psychological benefits of the patient.
