OD Case 2 SS
This patient presented in 2010, complaining of an old, ill-fitting upper denture. The denture was stained, worn and moved constantly. The patient did not have any teeth/ dentures in his lower jaw. The lower ridge was flat ridge and the denture was very loose.
This patient was given a set of new complete upper and lower dentures. The lower denture was supported by two implants placed in the canine positions. The implants had locator attachments which in turn clicked into the under surface of the denture, thus increasing retention.
The patient was very happy with the aesthetic outcome and increased retention of his dentures. He smiled confidently and could chew without worrying about his denture falling down. His quality of life had dramatically improved following treatment completion.
