This case describes the oral rehabilitation of a patient following maxillary hemi-section due to Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the palate. Planned treatment was construction of a maxillary implant-supported obturator. Two dental implants were placed in his maxilla to aid the support and retention of an obturator. However, due to bone availability their angulation was suboptimal and compromised the retention of the obturator. This case describes alternative implant attachments to aid in retention and stability of implant retained dentures constructed in cases with suboptimal implant placement.
