Management of partially edentulous patients can still be a prosthodontic challenge. Replacing the missing teeth with conventional removable partial dentures (RPDs) is the traditional method for the treatment of partial edentulism; however, there are many potential disadvantages associated with traditional RPDs. With the advent of osseointegrated dental implants, possibilities of prosthetic reconstruction for partial edentulism are endless. This article discusses the implant-retained partial overdenture (IRPOD) with resilient attachments as a predictable and cost-effective treatment for partially edentulous patients.
