The purpose of this case report is to present implant-retained maxillary and mandibular complete overdentures in a patient with Marfan syndrome. The patient initially presented with generalized periodontitis (stage IV, grade C). Due to the progressive nature of periodontal disease, the patient elected to have implant-retained maxillary and mandibular complete dentures. Bilateral maxillary sinus augmentation was performed 6 months before full-mouth extraction, alveoloplasty, and immediate implant placement. Maxillary and mandibular immediate overdentures were delivered. After 4 months of healing, the final overdenture was fabricated. The patient was seen regularly throughout the healing process for peri-implant maintenance. Soft-tissue grafts were completed to increase the thickness of the mucosa around the implants. The patient has been followed for 2 years and is functioning well without major complications. For patients with Marfan syndrome, implant-retained prostheses are a viable treatment option in the presence of a failing dentition.
