Nupur Rathi, Roma Goswami , Khurshid A Mattoo

A complete denture prosthesis that is not integrated to the jaws can never give a patient the confidence in functional activity associated with dentition. Implant supported overdenture is a treatment option that has overcome this lacunae of conventional complete dentures. We present a case of an elderly female patient who, despite her age responded well to placement of two implants on which a mandibular overdenture was attached using a ball and socket attachments. The abutment retainer was attached to the denture with respective O rings provided with the precision attachment. The denture was attached to the abutment directly in the patient's mouth using a fast setting duralay resin. Key words: Ball and socket ,O-ring , precision attachment, overdenture, osseointegration.
