 To maintain a harmonious craniofacial system, it is essential to establish an appropriate occlusal vertical dimension (OVD). This case report describes our establishment of an appropriate OVD and occlusal reconstruction with overdenture using magnetic attachments.
  The first therapy, the incompatibility prostheses in marginal portion were removed on its tooth and #6, 7 and 8 tooth was extracted, then an immediate denture in the maxilla was set on the portion of missing teeth. After the preprosthetic treatment, the OVD was increased by the use of the immediate denture and treatment denture, and the patient obtained an adequate occlusal relationship.
  As a definitive prosthesis, a maxillary complete overlay denture with magnetic attachments was fabricated.
