Preventive Prosthodontics emphasizes the importance of any procedure that can delay or eliminate future prosthodontic problems. The conventional modality of treatment for partially edentulous arches with presence of a few teeth, was either to render them completely edentulous by extracting the remaining teeth and providing complete dentures, or restoring them with removable partial dentures. An overdenture with support of few remaining teeth can also be provided as a good alternative. Various attachments and types of overdentures can be fabricated on the retained teeth or roots. The telescopic crowns for the overdenture can be given as a successful attachment. This article presents the simplified technique of telescopic overdenture using customized double copings for the overdenture abutments.
