Over Dentures in Prosthodontics

# The use of selected initial roots in over denture therapy is called :
a) Overlaying denture therapy
b) Biologic denture therapy
c) Submucosal vital root retention
d) Submerged denture therapy


The correct answer is C. Submucosal vital root retention.

In over dentures, anterior abutments are preferred over posterior abutments since the anterior ridge is more vulnerable to resorption than the posterior ridge.
