Generally implants are considered to restore the masticatory function, occlusion, and esthetics once the natural teeth have given up their job in the masticatory system. Today implants are considered for partially edentulous and completely edentulous situations, in order to give greater advantages and benefits over the removable prosthesis, for patients. According to the scientific literature review there is no conclusive option or parameters available on the subject of implant occlusion. Implant occlusion is the result of the surgical placement of implant and prosthetic designs, but this never happened to be a goal What type of occlusion is still an ambiguity, present whenever we are restoring cases with implants. This case report illuminates the fact that an implant can be used to correct the malocclusion associated with natural teeth, irrespective of whether or not scientific literature has cited what type of occlusion is planned on an implant prosthesis, in cases where multiple implants are used and complex procedures are undergone. However, this case report stands as a witness to the fact that an implant can change the occlusion / correct occlusion.
