Abstract

Using either cement or screw to retain prosthesis depends on the clinician’s choice. Both mode of treatment has their own advantages and disadvantages. Cement retained has better esthetics, better access, and low cost whereas screw-retained prosthesis preserves gingival health and its predictable retrievability that can be achieved without damaging the restoration or fixture. This case report presents a case with the replacement of mandibular molar due to inadequate interocclusal space for cement retained prosthesis and the situation was managed with UCLA abutment.
