ABSTRACT:The preliminary objectives of successful prosthetic rehabilitation is to provide comfortable function and esthetics to the patient. An overdenture delays the process of resorption, improves denture foundation area and increases masticatory efficiency (1). Preventive prosthodontics is the branch of prosthodontics that aims at avoiding complete edentulism. Overdenture treatment is influenced by preventive prosthodontics, which uses the natural teeth as abutment teeth for support and hence allows the retention of the prosthesis. Recent advances in technology have introduced various attachment-retained overdenture, which act as shock absorber and stress redirector and also provide various advantages over complete denture like superior retention, support, stability, psychological benefits, and proprioception. This article presents a case report that describes the steps involved in a bar-retained tooth-supported overdenture.
