Abstract

The rehabilitation of the fully edentulous patients could be compromised due to their diversity in terms of clinical, medical, anatomical and economic situations. Typically, narrow and atrophic edentulous ridges complicate retention, support and stability. Overdenture using attachment or implants could help the improvement of denture function and recommended due to its relative simplicity, predictability and affordability. In this report, a short stature patient under medically and physically handicapped was treated as minimal invasive prosthetic intervention using single magnetic attachment (Magfit®) on the maxilla and 2 freestanding mini-implants (LODI®) placed in mandible following recommendations from the 2002 McGill. For 12 months following up, patient is satisfied with the final results in functional aspects and esthetic.
