Prosthetic Rehabilitation of Severely Attrited Dentition with Removable Overlay Denture - A Case Report

Dr. Dipankar Pal


Abstract: The purpose of prosthodontic treatment should be aimed at perpetual preservation of that what remains and not the meticulous replacement of that which has been lost. (Muller de Van 1952). Often, there are some atypical situations where we are unable to solve the existing clinical milieu by a conventional prosthesis due to certain hindrances. Overlay denture is an unconventional but predictive method of restoring such situations. An overlay denture comprises of a complete or partial denture that is supported by soft tissues along with natural teeth that have been altered to permit the denture to fit over them. The altered teeth should be modified, non carious and the patient should have a fairly good oral hygiene. This clinical report highlights the prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient with a removable overlay denture.
