Implant overdentures are an effective treatment modality for rehabilitating edentulous patients and there are various attachment mechanisms between the implants and the overlying dentures such as bar and clip, ball and socket, and magnet and keeper. The bar and clips system has been used over years to retain and support implant-supported overdenture. Majority of them are available as preformed patterns that are expensive and provide little scope for clinical adjustments. A new alternative technique has been devised that involves the custom designing of the screw-retained bar pattern in readily available materials, followed by the casting in desired metal and chairside incorporation of the retentive clips.
