The article presents a study on the dental and periodontal status and the sulcular microbial ecology of the overdenture abutment roots over a two and a half year observation. For the study, six patients ranging from 30 to 65 years of age with either maxillary or mandibular overdentures were considered. The teeth which were preserved as future overdenture abutments were treated periodontally. After the periodontal therapy and after insertion of the overdentures the gingival microbial flora changed.
