Abstract

Previous clinical research has shown promising results in oral rehabilitation of elderly adults by a single implant-retained mandibular overdenture; however, the high incidence of fracture in the anterior region of these overdentures is a concern for clinicians. To minimize catastrophic overdenture fracture, we propose a technique to insert an individualized metal framework in single implant-retained overdentures prior to implant surgery.
