Abstract

The overdenture therapy is a conservative alternative for patients who only have a few important teeth left. Retained abutments significantly improve the denture's overall retention and stability. In addition to these advantages, the retained teeth benefit from the intact periodontium, which gives positive reinforcement to the underlying bone. The therapy for overdentures can be done with or without attachments. Although attachments can provide adequate retention, they result in further weaking of the tooth structure due to preparation of the intra-radicular canal. On the other hand, coping supported overdenture provides us with an option of preserving the tooth structure while maintaining the retentive aspect of overdenture. Also retaining roots at the gingival level have proven to preserve the alveolar ridge and shield it from residual ridge resorption. Thus, this article presents a case report aimed at highlighting the usage of different techniques for tooth supported overdenture.
