In such cases Implant supported dentures can be promising alternative to conventional dentures. However, it is not always possible to provide patients with implant treatment as geriatric patients with systemic illness and economic constrains, possess reluctance for a long duration of treatment procedure and unwillingness for any kind of surgical procedure.
