Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the oral health–related quality of life (OHRQoL) of patients treated with three different types of mandibular implant overdentures (IOD) after at least 3 years in function. Materials and Methods: A total of 122 patients treated with mini implant (50), locator (56), or bar (16) mandibular IODs participated. Modified plaque (PI) and gingival (GI) indices were also assessed. Results: Older patients and patients with mini mandibular IODs were the most satisfied with their OHRQoL. The bar overdenture presented the worst PI and GI results. Conclusion: The mini mandibular overdenture patients were assessed with a better OHRQoL than those with bar and locator IODs.
