Implant “Over” Denture
An implant over-denture connects to cylinder-like dental implants that have been surgically implanted into jaw bone. The denture appears like a traditional denture. However, that part of the denture overlying implants is modified to retain various semi-rigid attachments that receive implant extensions projecting above the gum. This helps keep the denture securely in place while eating, speaking and during other oral activities, but still allows easy self-removal of the denture for cleaning purposes.
