Overdenture is defined as a completely or partially removable denture that covers or is supported by one or more remaining natural teeth, roots and / or dental implants. This study aims to examine the masticatory efficiency and patient acceptability of overdentures compared to conventional dentures. A literature review was performed to analyze the importance of dental prosthetic treatment to provide patients with proper function and optimal esthetics.
