The implant-prosthetic rehabilitation of the completely edentulous lower arch results in a considerable number of biological, functional, psychological and operational advantages. The placement of two implants for the anchorage of an overdenture represents the solution with the best cost-benefit for our patients. The initial treatment plan includes patient’s medical history, oral examination, radiographic analysis and the assessment of preexisting dental prostheses, if any. Only at a later time, therefore, it will be possible to plan, in concert with the patient’s expectations, the surgical-prosthetic procedure that will result in the finalization of the case.
