An alternative method for the fabrication of a root-supported overdenture: a clinical report.

Abstract

The preservation of teeth to support an attachment-retained overdenture is an appropriate and stable alternative to extractions and complete dentures. A key to success is the strategic selection of teeth for retention. This clinical report discusses a method for fabricating an overdenture based on a combination of direct and indirect impression techniques. This technique is a simple and time-efficient alternative to traditional methods that aids in overcoming difficulties in fabricating overdentures.
