Implant-supported bar-latch overdenture for the severely atrophied, edentulous jaw: A case report
Semsch, Rainer/Muche, Robert
The removable implant-supported prosthesis is the treatment of choice in some clinical situations. Despite its technically demanding fabrication and the resultant high cost, the bar-latch overdenture provides stability and is easy for patients to manage. A case report illustrating the surgical and prosthetic procedures of this treatment option, including laboratory fabrication, is presented.
