Teeth loss is a traumatic experience. It disturbs the total integrity of the masticatory system. Its successful rehabilitation should address a range of biomechanical problems, tolerances, and perceptions. Precision attachment-supported over Dentures with two teeth retained in canine region is a predictable treatment option in edentulous mandible rather than conventional complete denture as it offers increased retention, stability, comfort, bone preservation, maintenance of proproception and patient compliance. This study was carried out to determine patient satisfaction with precision attachment-supported overdentures and conventional overdenture and its impact on the treatment outcome. Material & Methods: Twenty(20) edentulous patients were randomly divided into two groups to receive precision attachment -supported overdentures and conventional overdenture in mandibular arch. Questionnaires were given to the patient after treatment at 6 and 12months interval. Data collected were statistically analyzed. Results: Results obtained from this study show that patients with precision attachment -supported overdentures were more satisfied with the treatment outcome, and there was a significant difference in patient satisfaction between the two groups.
