Abstract:

Extraction  of the  last  remaining  teeth  and  replacement  with  complete  dentures  has  many  consequences.  The patient  has  to  adapt  to  a  new  situation  with  respect  to speech,  chewing,  swallowing,  and  so  forth.  The  patient also  has  to  accept  edentulousness,  which  may  lead  to  psychological  problems  and  social  isolation. Furthermore, extraction  of teeth  leads  to  a reduction  of  the  alveolar  ridge, which  causes  changes  in  denture  base  adaptation,  vertical dimension  of  occlusion,  and  occlusal  contacts.

The retention of roots to support/retain an overdenture has been shown to reduce residual ridge resorption, improve stability and to retain proprioception.

Keywords: Onlay dentures, Overlay dentures, Preventive prosthodontics
