The mandibular complete denture is a challenge for the dentist. Unfavorable anatomical and physiological conditions such low bearing surface and a significant bone resorption, often compromise the prosthetic retention. For this, prosthodontic practice should always concentrate on procedures that prevent the excessive loss of jaw bone and those that contribute in maintaining the alveolar ridge height. Overdentures are one such option wherein roots prevent alveolar bone resorption, provide better load transmission, maintain sensory feedback and achieve better stability of denture with emphasis on psychological aspect of not being completely edentulous. Additionally, the exploitation of residual roots is a reliable alternative that leads to a better prosthetic integration by increasing the retention by the use of attachments.
This article illustrates the contribution of the axial attachment (CekaPreci Line) in the prosthetic balance optimization of a mandibular supra-radicular total prosthesis.
