Abstract

One of the most common problems encountered by edentulous patients is lack of retention and stability of prosthesis with decreased masticatory efficiency. An overdenture treatment is one of the inevitable solutions for this condition. This case report highlights the use of an “Access post over denture system” which is more advantageous over the conventional tooth supported overdentures. The access post  overdenture  fabricated  was  well  retentive  and  esthetic  serving  as  a  conservative  approach  to  root preservation.
