Success rates for osseointegrated dental implants in the anterior mandible are very high. Due to these success rates, as well as lower costs, it is common to treat edentulous patients with just two implants, which will act as anchors for retention of the overdenture. The implant-retained overdenture is an alternative treatment option in edentulous patient's rehabilitation, providing significant retention, stability, function, and esthetics. This clinical report highlights the prosthetic rehabilitation of a partially edentulous mandibular arch with implant-supported overdenture using locator attachment.
