The overdenture is defined as a removable partial denture or complete denture that covers and rests on one or more remaining natural teeth, the roots of natural teeth and / or dental implants. The overdenture is a scientifically sound treatment option when preventive prosthodontics is concerned. This article represents a case report in which maxillary overdenture is fabricated using prefabricated titanium posts and clear retentive caps whereas mandibular overdenture is fabricated using a hader bar and positioning clips.
