Dentists have a significant rolein improving their patients' oral health and quality of life with the help of the overdentures that support the implant. An atrophic mandible significantly impedes the successful oral rehabilitation with dental implants. An implant supported mandibular overdenture fabricated in this case report utilizes two implants placed in inter-foramina region and a dual retentive, resilient, self-locating locator and ball abutment attachment mechanism. Utilising locators and a ball abutment as the attachment, the dentist canrapidly and satisfactorily meet the patient's functional, economic, and social needs.
