Background: Evidence suggests that the retention of mandibular roots for the preservation of bone in patients by utilizing an over denture is a conservative approach for a fixed and removable prosthetic reconstruction.

Case description: A young adult with worn and fractured dentition exhibited severe loss of function and esthetics, exhibiting both occlusal discrepancies as well as esthetic problems. The treatment was preventive as well as conservative in nature. It was recommended to preserve endodontically treated teeth in order to preserve the bone in young patients with a severely worn, non-restorable dentition. By reviewing the current literature, several aspects of patient selection and treatment planning are discussed.

Practical Implications: This case report suggests that patients can benefit from a fixed and removable maxillary and mandibular prosthetics by using over denture stud attachments, preserving the endodontically treated roots in order to maintain bone.
