What are Denture Over Implants and how do they work?
Loose dentures can be remedied with the addition of implants placed by a dental surgeon. Once implanted into your jaw, the bone and the implant body integrate into one cohesive member and provide a stable and reliable anchor on which a denture may be fitted.
Implants can be used to support both complete and partial dentures. Implant bodies are also employed as retention abutments used in retaining full or partial dentures.
Regular dentures rest on the gums while an implant-supported denture snaps onto implants.
There are two types of implant dentures:
- Fixed implant dentures – requires the assistance of a denturist to remove
- Removable implant dentures – Can snap off and on manually
