Abstract

The introduction and evolution of dental implants has revolutionized the treatment modalities for replacement of lost natural teeth. Dental professionals are aware of the problems associated with complete mandibular dentures. The denture bearing area for a mandibular denture is three times lesser than for a maxillary denture. In addition, continued residual ridge resorption compromises the retention, stability and support. Today, the minimum standard of care for an edentulous patient is implant supported mandibular overdentures. The insertion of implants for support, retention, and/or stability of an over denture contributes a more favourable environment for the restoration. This case report is of an implant retained mandibular denture using two single piece ball attachment dental implants in the mandibularridge.
