- The rehabilitation of the fully edentulous patients, especially in mandible, could be compromised due to their diversity in terms of clinical, medical, anatomical and economic situations. An implant-retained complete overdenture is recommended as the gold standard in the oral rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible due to its relative simplicity, minimal invasiveness, predictability, efficacy and affordability. In this report, two fully edentulous patients under anticiagulatory therapy who were treated with a conventional complete denture on the maxilla and implant retained overdenture supported by freestanding implants placed in the anterior region of the mandible. Locator and magnetic attachments were used for retention of the mandibular overdenture respectively. Patients were satisfied with the final results in esthetic and functional aspects.
