All efforts to save the natural teeth should be made during restoration to achieve optimum functionality and aesthetics. Tooth loss is associated with appetite loss and loss of nutritional values. Thus, rehabilitating complete or partial edentulous conditions contributes to improvement in the functioning of the masticatory system. In the latter case of partially dentate condition, the natural teeth present preserve the residual ridges. Extraction of teeth causes alveolar ridge resorption. Poor foundation or ridge form donot provide support for the denture bases which is the factor of utmost consideration for stabilisation of the denture bases. In these instances, the use of the telescopic dentures may be indicated. A telescopic denture retains and preserves the natural teeth beneath it. Every dentist aims at preserving the natural and restoring the lost.
