Abstract

An extension of conventional overdenture philosophy with the use of radicular attachments in endodontically treated teeth can be used to improve stability, reduce bony resorption and proprioception and augment retention. However, radicular attachments are not appropriate in all cases. Indications, requirements, advantages and disadvantages of this type of prosthesis are provided.
