ABSTRACT:Dentistry revolves around maintaining the health of the oral tissues and preserving the integrity of the dentition. The branch of prosthodontics aims at preserving what remains rather than meticulously replacing what is lost. This dictum by M. M. Devan has led to development of various treatment modalities which involve salvaging as many teeth as possible and preserving all associated structures. One of these include the concept of overdentures. It deals with providing a prosthesis to a patient by using maximum support from the tissue, bone and the remaining teeth. This article is a case series discussing rehabilitation of patients by using various types of overdenture techniques.
