Abstract

Complete maxillary and mandibular dentures have been used as a conventional treatment of edentulous patients for longer than a century. Suitable complete maxillary dentures are usually well tolerated but many patients struggle to chew and swallow with the complete mandibular denture because it is too unstable. Previous studies have shown that a mandibular two-implant retained overdenture is superior to the conventional denture in terms of retention and stability. Thereby, the two-implant assisted mandibular overdenture should be the first treatment option for mandibular edentulous patients. In this report, a mandibular two-implant retained overdenture with Locator® attachments by using direct intraoral pick-up technique was discussed.
