Abstract

 Denture fabrication for patients with severely deficient mandibular ridges has been a challenging task for dentists. The widespread use of implants in dentistry has opened up a wide variety of treatment options for rehabilitation of such patients. Depending on the condition of the hard and soft tissues the treatment plan can be customized for the patient. A case is presented where an implant supported overdenture is fabricated for a patient with severely resorbed mandibular ridge using three implants and a customized bar with clip attachments.
