The problems could be attributed to the absence of the posterior abutment, placement of posterior implants provides patients with unique service and benefits not possible with more conventional treatment options. A 44 years old male with Kennedy class I mandibular partially edentulous ridge extending distal to the second premolar, full dentition in maxillary arch, was complaining of poor stability with his old denture .Two implants are placed in the second molar position (one in each side) and received a removable partial denture supported on healing abutments. Patient was followed up for one year clinically.
