Two-implant supported maxillary overdentures – clinical and patient centered outcomes
Statement of Problem
There is limited knowledge of 2-implant supported maxillary overdentures
To know the clinical and patient centered outcomes of 2-implant maxillary overdentures.
Materials and Methods
17 patients have been recruited who were provided with two implants in the anterior maxilla for a maxillary overdenture. Clinical and patient-centered outcomes were recorded.
Clinical and patient-centered outcomes for patients based on a one-year follow-up will be presented.
Preliminary data allows us to conclude that 2-implant supported maxillary overdentures have favorable clinical and patient-centered outcomes. This pilot investigation can be used as a basis for a larger study.
