Abstract

Edentulism has been a big issue whether it is in old age or in young individuals. The geriatric patients often encounter problems because of the absorbed mandibular ridges. The most common problem faced is the lack of stability and retention of the mandibular denture which ultimately affect the chewing and masticatory efficacy of the patients. Since ages the conventional complete denture is used as a treatment modality for edentulous patients but in last 20 years the implant supported overdenture has emerged as new option for edentulous patients. The use of implant supported overdenture had increased over a time because of good clinical results. The clinical edge of implant supported overdenture over conventional denture is that it can be given in resorbed ridges. The prosthesis shows less movement, better esthetics, improved function and maintenance of vertical dimension of occlusion over time. The higher success is associated with the implant supported overdenture because it meets the patients’ expectations, improve quality of life with long term serviceability and positive outcomes.
