Mandibular Tooth-Supported Overdenture: A Case Report

Author(s): Pradeep Dhanyasree, Shetty Nitesh, B Haifa, Sandhu Amrita


Overdenture is one of the most preferred treatment modality in elderly individuals with very few remaining natural teeth. Retaining the natural teeth preserves the proprioceptive impulses, reduces the residual ridge resorption and improves the retention of the denture. This case report describes the fabrication of a mandibular tooth supported overdenture. A tooth-supported overdenture retaining two mandibular premolars with short copings were found to be successful in rehabilitating a partially edentulous patient with excellent retention and additional stability to the prosthesis.
