Simplified Method for fabrication of O- Ring Implant Supported Overdenture- Case Report

Vikas Punia, Mohit Handa, Nikhil Verma, Virender Singh, Vivek Lath



Dental implants are increasingly used as suitable prosthodontic substitutes for natural teeth. The benefits of implant supported mandibular implant overdenture treatment relative to conventional mandibular denture treatment have been well documented. Half of all conventional mandibular dentures illustrate problems like improper retention and stability in prosthesis. It may also be a practical form of treatment for “satisfied” denture wearers who desire additional stability for their prostheses.
