Introduction: Edentulism is the major problem in the elderly population. Loss of retention and stability of the lower denture can be overcome by implants to improve their masticatory efficiency, and quality of life. So, the aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the masticatory efficiency of single and double implant retained overdenture and assess their oral health related quality of life by questionnaire method.

Methodology: Twenty edentulous patients with inclusion and exclusion criteria divided into two groups, provided Conventional complete denture (CCD) to all patients. Objective evaluation (surface EMG) was done after 3 months, followed by placement of implants- Group I (SIOD) with single implant and group II with two implants (DIOD). Delayed loading was followed. Surface EMG evaluation was done again after 3 months usage of dentures. Subjective evaluation was done using OHIP 20 questionnaire before and after implant placement.

Result: Statistically analysis of EMG results found that there was statistically significant difference (p<0.05) between CCD and SIOD, CCD and DIOD, DIOD and SIOD respectively. In Subjective evaluation by questionnaire method, though there was significant difference found between CCD ad SIOD, CCD and DIOD respectively, there was no statistical difference (p > 0.05) between SIOD and DIOD.

Conclusion: This study revealed that single implant retained overdenture improved masticatory efficiency and the patient satisfaction was similar to both SIOD and DIOD respectively. So this study concluded that single implant may be good alternative to two implant retained overdenture in patients who cannot afford to two implants
