Abstract

Recently, osseointegrated implants have been used to improve denture support, stability, and retention. Several studies have been revealed that mandibular two-implant overdentures significantly increase patient satisfaction with the function of their prostheses. Use of a wide variety of attachment systems, including stud, magnet, and bar attachments, has proven both clinically predictable and effective. This article presents that two-implant overdenture can become the standard of care for treatment of the edentulous mandible.
