Abstract

In edentulous mandible, implant supported overdenture was considered as a first treatment option. Konus type attachment supplies rigid support and cross arch stabilization so that more favorable force transmission and distribution can be attained. In the dentistry, computer aided design-computer aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM) system makes it possible to fabricate restorations with high precision and effectiveness. Recently, Palladium-silver (Pd-Ag) alloy which is millable has been developed. This article presents that application of CAD-CAM Konus type attachment can be provide satisfactory stability and function on four-implant supported mandibular overdenture.
