Abstract

Partially edentulous patients are often planned for prosthetic replacement on the basis of their poor economy rather than actual indicated treatment strategy. Immediate overdenture is one of such strategic planning where patients are rehabilitated with combination of two conventionally different complete dentures. Preventive prosthodontics believes in preservation of residual alveolar ridge at all levels, wherein; remaining natural teeth are saved, restored and used as abutments for complete denture ultimately preserving the bone. One such approach in the form of case report is presented where the patient was treated with mandibular immediate complete denture which was supported by few remaining natural teeth after undergoing root canal therapy.
