Abstract
Prosthetic dentistry is one of the fundamental pillars of dentistry. The most important step in prosthetic
prophylaxis is the prevention of causes leading to tooth extraction. In presence of natural teeth, occlusal forces
in the form of tensile stress are transferred to the alveolar bone thereby stimulating additional bone formation.
Tooth supported overdenture has been a proven mainstay of conservative prosthodontic treatment. Despite the
recent developments in dental implantology, overdenture is considered as versatile and conservative means of
achieving long term restoration. They are superior to the conventional complete denture in terms of esthetic and
functional efficacy and have a big impact on a personís psychological well being. Various aids in the form of
attachments are used for the fabrication of overdentures to achieve improved retention. Irrespective of the type
of attachment used primary objective should be to provide cost-effective treatment with the best functional
efficacy. This clinical report describes a novel method of fabricating tooth-supported maxillary overdenture
retained with custom made ball attachments using orthodontic separators as a female component and mandibular
overdenture retained with prefabricated magnet attachments.

Key words: Over-denture, Attachment, magnet, MAGFIT, root keeper, orthodontic module
