Aims: Evaluation patient satisfaction treated with new dentures using ball-socket, bar with and without cantilever, and magnetic attachments within two implant-supported mandibular overdentures (ISMOD) ) in relation to conventional denture (baseline) for 2-years by using questionnaire Al-Makki. Materials and methods: Twenty two edentulous patients were scheduled for evaluation of their oral function, two years they participated in this study. They received two mandibular implants and a new denture with different attachments {ball-socket, bar (Straight and curved) with or without cantilever, and magnetic types}. After 2 years of delivery of the overdentures, the oral situation was evaluated by using questionnaire. Non-parametric two-related sample analysis tests were used. Results: Patient satisfaction improved significantly between baseline and the new prosthesis with each attachment types for all domains of satisfaction (p≤0.05) for usual wearing of prosthesis. Conclusions: Patients satisfaction highly improved after implant retained denture treatment for the lower jaw. The type of attachment systems highly effect patients satisfaction about wearing of denture for social occasions and shape and size of the denture. But attachment type had no effect on patients satisfaction for masticatory functions.
