Immediately Loaded Mandibular Implant Bar Overdenture: A Surgical and Prosthodontic Rationale.
Composite reconstruction was completed in both maxillary central incisors and a maxillary interim removable partial denture and a mandibular removable complete overdenture were fabricated in the Prosthodontic clinic (Figure 2(g)).
General implant-assisted removable partial denture, a type of implant overdenture, has the advantage of prolonging the prognosis of the residual abutment and reducing the costs compared to fixed implant prostheses.
Also, note the widely spaced quadrilateral arrangement of remaining mandibular teeth considered typical for an overdenture.
In the mandible, three implants were placed during the first surgery, splinted and loaded with an overdenture, restoring function, and aesthetics.
