ABSTRACT:Edentulism is affecting the oral health of the patient debilitating their functional, esthetical and psychosocial demands. When very few natural teeth remains in the oral cavity, prosthetic rehabilitation can be possible by over denture, immediate denture, transitional denture or complete denture after complete removal of the remaining teeth. But when patient denies for extraction or any other treatment then transitional denture in the form of cusil denture is the best gentle option for the patient which is accompanied with the preservation of teeth and bone. This boosts the confidence of the patient by the presence of natural teeth along with proprioception during mastication. Cusil denture is a type of transitional denture which consist of holes in it for natural teeth which has a gasket of silicon relining material acting like a splint for periodically weak teeth.
