Background: Implant number, loading time and patient satisfaction are the critical issues in management of completely edentulous patients with implant prosthesis. Literature has mentioned the success of immediately loaded implant overdenture but only few studies are there in Indian scenario. Methods: 15 completely edentulous patients in the age range of 40-70 years were selected for this study. Balanced occlusion Complete dentures were fabricated and inserted in the patient's mouth. Same patients were taken up for implant placement after 2 months and implants were evaluated for clinical parameters Results: The patient responded favourably to this modality of treatment. The questionnaire method used for assessing masticatory capacity and general satisfaction showed positive impact at 6-month and 12-month follow-up compared to the baseline scores (P-value<0.001 for both). Conclusion: Patient's satisfaction and masticatory capacity improved significantly with immediately loaded implant overdenture in this study. Study with more elaborate sample size is recommended to verify the results of this study.
