Abstract: If $ (\Im, \mathcal{F})$ is a torsion theory on Mod $ R$, then a ring $ B$ of biendomorphisms of a $ \Im$-cocritical module is topologized. Moreover, if a certain factor module of $ R$ is quasi-projective, a ring monomorphism $ \varphi :R \to B$ is found such that $ \varphi (R)$ is topologically dense in $ B$. This is done in such a way that when $ (\Im, \mathcal{F})$ is the torsion theory in which every module is torsion free, the Jacobson density theorem is recovered.
