Tooth loss can occur by progressive caries, accidents, and gum problems. This can affect the beauty, smile, and chewing efficiency of an individual. This can be corrected by replacing the teeth with an artificial denture. Overdenture is a treatment option for individuals with very few teeth. So, preserving the root under the denture will maintain the proprioception, preserve the alveolar ridge by preventing residual ridge resorption and maintain denture stability. Though there are new developmen
