Over denture is a one of the recommended treatment modality for aged patients with few remaining teeth with severely resorbed ridges. Root stumps under the denture base preserve further resorption of alveolar ridge which provides sensory feedback and improves the stability of the dentures. Moreover, the use of copings (short/long) and attachments on the remaining teeth after enododontic therapy enhances the retention of the denture. Success for the treatment depends on strategic selection of teeth. The present case report demonstrates the successful preservation of few remaining teeth to support tooth-retained overdenture. This treatment modality was selected considering the favorable inter ridge distance and economical status of the patient rather than complete extractions followed by complete denture or implant supported overdenture.
