Complete denture fabrication can be a treatment challenge for many dentists, especially when the patient has remaining teeth. So, planning for use of clinical alternatives to improve the treatment prognosis and to enable greater comfort to patient must be considered. Bearing in mind the philosophy of Preventive Prosthodontics, tooth supported overdenture therapy has long term advantage, by preserving the proprioception and thereby residual alveolar ridge. A telescopic denture is a prosthesis which consists of a primary coping which is cemented to the abutments in a patient's mouth and a secondary coping which is attached to the prosthesis and which fits on the primary coping. This clinical report describes the prosthodontic rehabilitation of a patient with the remaining maxillary natural teeth by telescopic overdenture for added advantages like better retention, stability, support and psychological benefits of the patient.
