Group I (six patients) had rigid telescopic connection and Group II (six patients) received non-rigid telescopic attachments. OHIP14 questionnaire was translated in Arabic and orally asked the patients, answers were collected soon after denture insertion and use (within 1 week), 6 and 12 months after using the overdenture to assess patient’s quality of life.

RESULTS: There was no statistical significant difference regarding quality of life using OHIP14 questionnair between the two groups.

CONCLUSION: Telescopic two-implant mandibular overdenture showed high quality of life, great satisfaction, and acceptance among patients; regardless to the type of attachments rigid or non-rigid.
