Edentulism has been a Enduring factor in the field of dentistry. Implant supported overdentures have proved to be one of the best alternative options in prosthetic rehabilitation of various cases of edentulism. They satisfy the patient’s expectations, improve quality of life with their long-term serviceability and predictable outcomes. Over conventional complete dentures and removable partial dentures, implant-supported overdentures have significant advantages in terms of practicality. These benefits include reduced bone loss, prosthesis movement, enhanced aesthetics, better occlusion, improved tooth positioning, increased occlusal function, and preservation of the occlusal vertical dimension. The implant systems and attachment methods have undergone substantial developments throughout time. This paper describes a case report in which a completely edentulous patient was rehabilitated with an implant supported overdenture in mandible and a complete denture in the maxilla.
