Nadeem Yunus, Humaira Tanvir, Jasmeena Tabeen Bhatt

Successful implant surgeon has to follow high standards that start from patient selection to postoperative care. Similarly, an implant prosthodontist needs to do same irrespective of the prosthetic option that has been chosen for a particular patient. The prosthetic option of implant support overdentures provides both clinicians a platform where standards can be learned, maintained and practiced easily. We present a case of an elderly female patient who was rendered recently completely edentulous with a two staged two implant supported overdenture. The patient was principally motivated when educated about the importance of bone preservation for future, since her age of becoming edentulous was lower. Complete denture was retained by ball and socket attachments. A two stage procedure was used for implant osseointegration. complete dentures were then adjusted once the abutments were placed on the implant fixtures. The patient was highly satisfied with the outcome of the implant supported overdenture. Keywords: edentulism, complete denture, precision attachment, osseointegration, implants.
