This article describes postimplant follow-up and retreatment of a 66-year-old patient with an esthetically compromising fixed maxillary tissue-integrated prosthesis and a mobile mandibular overdenture stabilized by precision attachments with a gold clip bar cemented to the transmucosal posts of a bone plate staple implant. Following successful completion of prosthodontic treatment, the patient returned with a fracture of the left transmucosal pip in the mandibular bone plate staple implant that was retreated with Brånemark implants and a fixed prosthesis.
