The prosthetic rehabilitation of the completely edentulous patient with resorbed mandibular ridge has always been a major challenge. Conventional maxillary and mandibular dentures have been the traditional standard of care. In the situation of resorbed mandibular ridge patient with conventional mandibular denture report difficulties such as lack of retention, stability, support, and inability to masticate. Implant-supported overdenture has become a boon in such condition. The number of implants to be placed depends on the amount of bone available. Various attachment systems are available for implant-retained overdenture, i.e., bar attachment, stud abutment, magnetic attachment, locator attachment, and many more. This case report describes a design and fabrication technique of the implant-retained overdenture using three freestanding mandibular implants with stud abutment and O-ring attachment.
