Various precision attachment systems are available for tooth supported overdenture treatment modality. The objective of all the systems is to provide retention and support for the overdenture. Retention of a mandibular denture can be achieved by natural tooth-retained with bar and stud attachment in anterior region. A simple and cost effective treatment for a more complex implant overdenture is the concept of conventional tooth-retained overdentures. The present clinical report describes a patient treated with customized hader bar with coffee straw in mandibular tooth-borne overdenture.
