Abstract

Over denture is favoured treatment modality for an elderly patient with few remaining teeth, because of adaptation to wearing is facilitated. Roots maintained under the denture base preserve the alveolar ridge, provide sensory feedback and improve the stability of the dentures. In comparison with complete dentures, overdentures may provide better functions. The most common problem of mandibular complete denture is retention & stability and alveolar ridge resorption; hence care must be taken to preserve it.
