Abstract


Herein, we report the use of a maxillary implant-supported overdenture with magnetic attachment using healing abutments. A 57-yearold male presented with multiple tooth loss in the maxilla along with chronic periodontitis. He had a history of diabetes mellitus and a smoking habit. Rehabilitation was initiated using fixed prostheses. However, the treatment plan was altered to implant-supported overdenture owing to poor bone status and multiple failures of the implants. The magnetic attachment system was selected for the implant-supported overdenture without the use of a locator or bar type attachment. The implants used in the patient were not provided with a magnetic attachment for the overdenture; therefore, healing abutments were modified so that the magnetic attachments could be capped above them. The final prosthesis was satisfactory both functionally and esthetically.
