AUTHOR(S): Dr. Raja Singh and Dr. Roma Goswami
ABSTRACT:The partial edentulous arches are not uncommon in clinical practice. However, such cases not be always endeavoured through implant replacement. Clinical decision making should scrutinize on preservation of what remains and respective treatment to be practiced. Tooth supported overdenture well might not be a new concept but should be imbibed when remaining teeth are to be preserved for longstanding prosthetic management. This article delineate the use of double crown overdenture i.e. telescopic overdenture constituting of primary and secondary copings on the abutment and attached to prosthesis respective. The main aim and goal is to retain the teeth present, maintain sensory function and the adjacent residual ridge which consequently aids in retention, stability and support of the denture providing psychological benefit to the patient.
