Abstract

The most frequently encountered clinical situation in a dental practice is the completely edentulous mandibular arch for which implant supported overdentures has been the predictable procedure over time. The greater flexibility of implant position and the enhancement of retention, support, stability of the overdenture makes it an ideal treatment modality to begin a learning curve in implant dentistry. The following case deals with the successful rehabilitation of resorbed edentulous mandibular ridge using a overdenture supported and retained by two implants placed in the interforaminal region with ball abutments opposing the conventional maxillary complete denture which resulted in a significantly improved denture retention and masticatory efficiency compared to the conventional complete denture prosthesis. Thus, implant supported overdenture turns out to be much simpler, affordable and minimally invasive procedure to treat majority of the patients.
