The use of overdentures can aid in preservation of alveolar ridge height. The retention and stability of such prostheses is enhanced greatly in bar supported overdentures. Patient reported to the Department of Prosthodontics with the chief complaint of missing teeth in maxillary arch. Patient had given a history of multiple temporary partial dentures that she was not satisfied with. The chief reason for dissatisfaction was poor retention. The treatment plan that was decided upon was a custom fabricated bar supported overdenture. The bar was cemented intraorally and a female component on the intaglio surface of the denture ensured retention. The mode of retention was primarily through frictional resistance. The availability of different types of attachments has enabled a wide variety of treatment options.
