The purpose of maintaining the roots of one or more natural teeth in the oral cavity is to reduce the rate of ridge resorption, maintaining proprioception and providing alveolar bone support and achieve better stability of the denture with emphasis on psychological aspect of not being completely edentulous. This case report describes the utilization of the endodontically treated remaining natural roots to fabricate an overdenture that provided better retention than a conventional complete denture.

Keywords: Overdenture, Overlay denture, Proprioception, Post and core.
