ABSTRACT:The prosthetic management of the edentulous patient has long been a major challenge. Complete maxillary and mandibular dentures have been the traditional standard of care. However, most of the patients report problems adapting to their mandibular denture due to a lack of comfort, retention, stability and inability to masticate. Overdenture provide many advantages over conventional complete denture. These include decreased bone resorption, reduced prosthesis movement, better esthetics, improved tooth position, better occlusion, increased occlusal function and maintenance of the occlusal vertical dimension. This article presents design and fabrication technique of the implant-retained overdenture that uses two freestanding mandibular implants and bar retained tooth supported overdenture.
