Over denture with access post system: a case report

Neha Gupta, Dhawal Goyal, Manoj Agarwal, Priyanka Gupta, Meetu Mathur


Preservation of alveolar bone is the main aim of conventional tooth-retained overdenture. Preservation of  teeth for overdenture can improve retention and stability. In this case report, partial edentulous patient was treated with a tooth supported overdenture using Access Post System. The final restoration was stable, well retained and esthetic, serving as a conservative approach to root preservation.
