Implant-retained overdentures can be a simple treatment option to restore the edentulous mandible. Retention can be achieved via studs, linked bar system or magnets. Success rates using the different retention mechanisms have been reported to be high. However, long-term prospective studies on implant-retained overdentures are limited. This paper reports on a patient who has successfully worn a mandibular implant-retained overdenture with magnets for 12 years.
