Abstract

Objective: This article discuss a clinical case of implant retained overdenture as a predictable and effective treatment for completely edentulous arch.
Material and method: A patient with an edentulous maxilla and periodontically compromised teeth in the mandible was treated using a specific surgical and prosthodontic protocol. Patient was followed for 12 months postloading.
