Over dentures are removable prostheses with additional retention mechanisms on either the roots of remaining teeth or implants and provide improved stability and retention. This study the paper is not a study but a case report on the use of bar-clip overdentures.

Aimed: The purpose of this paper is to describe a prosthetic clinical protocol for treating the edentulous with a mandibular mucosal-supported and implant-retained bar-clip overdenture. In the presented case, the patient had functional and aesthetic problems with her current conventional dentures. Three osseointegrated implants were first successfully placed in the anterior mandible between the mental foramens. After the osseointegration period, customized molding procedures were utilized to make the overdenture prosthesis. Post-tratment clinical and radiographic examination revealed no painful symptomatology, infection, implant mobility, or acute peri-implant bone loss. The patient was satisfied with the aesthetics and prosthetic function. Thus, it could be concluded that overdentures are viable rehabilitation alternatives that promote satisfactory functional and aesthetic results in properly selected cases.
