Introduction. Complete edentulism is escorted by various comorbidities, which affect an individual. The management of edentulous patients was approached since the early days of dentistry.

Case presentation. This case report presents the applied treatment to a bimaxillary complete edentulous patient, where the predictable osseointegration and implant stability after the placement of implants was possible, with the purpose to support the overdentures.
Conclusions. The oral rehabilitation of complete bimaxillary edentulism through implant-supported overdentures is a procedure with a predictive treatment that presents beneficial aspects in the quality of life of the patients.
