The increased shoot to root ratio, driven by a precipitous decline in root mass, has been shown to be a common response for a range of plant species attempting to deal with heat stress (Ewing, 1981; Jiang and Huang, 2001).
Increased retention and stability of the overden- ture can be achieved by lengthening the vertical wall contact between abutment teeth and the denture base but in periodontally compromised teeth it is not possible because only by preparing the abutment into dome shaped can improve the crown root ratio which will reduce mobility.
