Access post overdenture a solution for challenging edentulous situation
Keywords:Overdenture, access post, resorbed ridges.
The dental profession is more aware of the problems associated with a complete denture than any other prosthesis. Sorrowful situation arises due to continuous resorption of the basal bone and lack of proprioception due to loss of teeth. The answer to this nagging problem lies in the scope of “Preventive Prosthodontics”. And there is no better example of such an effort other than overdentures. This paper presents a case report of “Access post overdenture”. The advantage of this overdenture post system lies in its patented, thick walled hollow tube design, stabilizing flanges, and undercuts of the shank which offers strength, retention due to nylon caps, and stability for the prosthesis.
Key words: Overdenture, access post, resorbed ridges.
